|20x22" acrylic on linen .....$1600|
I've finished the larger pieces I was working on. This one I just completed yesterday. All done with a palette knife, it's pretty sketchy and that's just how I like 'em. This leaves a little to the imagination. I think the viewer should get to participate in the composition. Realism is great. I appreciate it and I like to work on my technical skills too, but if we are only trying to reproduce what we see..........cameras do a nice job of capturing the subject. I'd prefer to suggest something and add my take on how it makes me feel.

This guy reminds me of an old fellow I used to build houses with. Nice man and a good carpenter but he had the coldest, fish eyed stare.

I see crab boats day and night from our house in all kinds of foul winter weather. This one was checking the pots early one rare, sunny morning about a month ago. I was on the beach trying to get a nice shot of it just beyond the surf. Of course my batteries were dead when I tried to shoot. I was about to lose my shot because they were heading back out, so I rubbed my batteries in my hands for a minute to warm them up and tried again. Bingo! It worked!

I painted a Kinglet a while back. Cute little guy... but it was sorta drab. Last week I saw a male and female together and was surprised to see the red crown on the male. When I looked it up, I saw they are called Ruby Crowned Kinglets.....Duhhh. Here's the male
