  1. Thought you were finished with this one long ago, but it turned out great, lovely colors and textures.

    1. I did too until I lived with it for a while. The first finish was shy of rivulets. Something HAD to be done! First finishes for me are often shy of totally finished. I am not a whip them off the easel painter. I need time to deliberate, to separate myself, to evaluate and discover what did I really want to say about that? To me, painting is like writing; the first draft is seldom as succinct as I want it to be.

  2. This one is really clever, and balanced, and the colours are right, and I see North American forest, and Malaysian Jungle and the Pacific Coast of Australia. You could hang it anywhere and it would work ... but you painted rain ... but I see what I want to see. The viewer becomes part of the painting.

    ... and...
    ... it's big...
    ... and you do big!

    1. You are so sweet! Thank you for your kind words. Odd thing about photographing this painting is it took a lot of shots using different digital settings, but none were satisfactory. In frustration, I used my iPad and BINGO! The colors were right on. Go figure it?

      I do like big---big surfaces, big gestures. Unfortunately big makes big demands on space and paint batches. I started out with brushes on this one and it was trite. When I was going through the effort of making value charts of the colors most on my palette, colors that applied to this painting showed up and were applied with palette knife. That effort finally got it looking like the rivulets of rain distorting the woods behind the house. Yesterday, I strengthened some of the areas and it all came together at last. I am pleased I can kiss it good bye.

  3. So big. Would like to see it on a wall, for scale.

    1. Will do. I'm going to hang it today or tomorrow pending 'dry to the touch.'

    1. Thank you Rita. I am very fortunate. My painting came out well. My test results were the best one could hope for. I will get to finish the rest of the unfinished stuff cluttering the studio; I don't have to hurry. I might just have to leave painting and draw for a few weeks, not a hardship. As long as I'm doing something I love, I'm happy. I hope things are going as well for you and yours. I can't wait to see your newest lovechop.
