Progress June 23

So much stuff is going on that it's difficult to concentrate today. Here is Silver Heels in progress. It is a small 11 x 14 on canvas. I will hit it again after it dries and hopefully the next session will finish it. I am switching back to the action pictures tomorrow.

Progress June 17

I am enjoying painting this picture so much that I started another, similar one. The next several paintings are going to focus on capturing the feeling of motion. My goal will be to depict accurate physical detail, while also capturing motion and gesture. Well, that's the goal. I have a couple of ideas for the next three pictures or so, and then hopefully back to narrative historical work by the end of September.

Progress June 16

I started this small picture today. This week I am finalizing my plans for paintings and show entries for the rest of the summer. It's time to start thinking about a Christmas/holiday card, and it's been a while since I had a promotional postcard made. So many things to work on when I'd rather just paint.

Progress June 15

I got to get back to this picture that was started last week. With this series, I am trying to paint looser and with brighter colors. I seem to start out that way, but as I work I find myself reverting to my old ways. I am enjoying the process however and the results.

Progress June 13

This is the first shot of a picture I started last week. I am working in a more direct style, hoping to have more spontaneity in my approach. Sunday will be a day of rest for this picture, I will be heading to the fairgrounds to shoot more reference and then to the farm for some long overdue chores. I plan on putting in the background on Monday.
