I'm feeling the need to stretch and experiment with my landscape painting. I received my David Alexander book "The Shape of Place" and it has me really wanting to push forward. I am going to do a series based on a plein air painting I did a number of years ago in Sedona (below). I want to try different palettes, various brush techniques etc... and see how it feels to incorporate new ways of thinking. I'm working from a previous painting because I liked the structure of it and felt there was ample room to experiment. Now, this is nothing compared to how it will be when I go outdoors and paint but it definitely will help with freeing my mind and habits. p.s. my website is back up and running. If you haven't checked it out lately, please feel free to take a look. All work is now sized and priced!
