Sittin" Pretty- 8x6- oil on c.b.

traveling back from key west today. did this 45 minute study with a knife before leaving this morning. the faster you have to go the bolder the paint is applied. no time to dilly dally. you have to see it quick, block in quick, and top coat fast. editing is real important as well, as you have to put down ONLY what you have to have to finish in the time alloted. really all the important qualities of nice paintings are wrapped up in those restraints. wow-- that means we should paint quicker to get better paintings. verrrry interestinnnnng. sitting in delray as i write this tonite. have several commissions to work on tomorrow here and then we're off, heading north away from painting paradise and gulf breezes.

this ones $200 if you want it before it goes to the gallery. contact me if youre interested.
