Capt. Charlie's in Lavender-24x24

this one's from the study i did while artist-in-residence on Bald Head Island a few weeks ago. playing bigger gives you a chance to get more discriptive with the shapes the smaller plein air format doesnt allow you time or room for. wow... i'm starting to like painting bigger. this year everybody was telling me "paint bigger, paint bigger", so i think 2010 will be the year of big paintings for me now that i'm not scared of them like i used to be.
have a happy thanksgiving and enjoy time with your friends and family. i know after weeks alone in the studio, i will.
for the people who come by here regularly to see my work, and those that are supportive with wonderful comments, i'm thankful for you! its nice to know that somebody wants to see it.
