The first half of the year is past, and the majority of my art-focused time has been spent at the COMPUTER, rather than the easel. Time for a re-think, re-focus, and re-MOVAL of fingers from the keyboard! Four half-finished paintings are now two, and the first completed work is a lone gull contemplating harbour life.....and possibly me simultaneously....I know how obnoxious gulls can be...aggressive, noisy, smelly, etc., but still a living thing full of grace and abilities, and definitely occupying a necessary niche in the world.
"The Observer," 16"x12" oil on canvas/masonite panel, $288 unframed.
