a couple of updates from yesterday...
Since many of the color decisions from my recent paintings have been completely invented, I thought some life studies would help me find some new color mixes. So yesterday morning I sat on my new backyard patio and painted my very overgrown backyard. The painting is only 2" x 3", but it was a ton of fun. There is something so enthralling about life painting, it feels like a higher stakes game.

Later in the day, I worked more on my ongoing backyard and beach paintings. Also, since I posted the painting of my grandmother on the beach two days ago, I was compelled to modify her face slightly (I think for the best).


  1. your yard is very deep, those crazy shades of green way back in the subtropical distance.

  2. "higher stakes game" it.
