This is another collage reworked. Again, I'm not sure it's finished. It's funny how things look finished, then you take a photograph of them, and you see things that you didn't see before - like that dark line going diagonally across the painting -- soooooo....back to the easel.
Damn BP. Having known folks who made their living off drilling for oil, I understand the excitement when a well comes in, and the money starts rolling in. It's pretty hard to think disaster, but no drilling is ever clean - no matter where you are.
This is an old painting that I did in a workshop several years ago. Like most workshop paintings, they don't really have time to gel into something you like. So, reworking has been an exercise that I've enjoyed. I like it now.
It's been a really long time since I have painted anything, and this last weekend, I made up for it. All the things I've been wanting to do came spilling out. Sunday was a delight because I had my good buddies Ava and Shiela in the studio painting with me.
I've always thought that you cannot create in a vacuum.
- I was married - for a really long time to the most interesting man in the world - Wayne Harmon. He is gone now, but never forgotten. We have one child, and two amazing grandchildren. I've been painting all my life, and consider myself a born teacher and a story teller.
