High bid for Marsh Afternoon is $28 from Toronto, Canada outbidding B.D. in new bern, nc.
you can see it a few posts below. auction ends friday
Tempting Fate-6x8

this has the economy of strokes that i'm trying hard to train myself to do subconciously. put a brushstroke down simply and then "leave it alone"

its when you go over that stroke again that things get blurred and it doesnt look like you meant it!

Thought this title was perfect for the little cottage perched on a fragile dune staring down future hurricanes and high tides!

thanks frank
i really concentrated on this idea i call "economy of stroke" where my usual time to finish is cut down and only essential strokes are allowed. maybe its working.... hope to go even further with the concept.
you seem to already have it down my friend!
