daily painting



oil on hardboard


Okay, I decided I have got to get back into painting mode.

It's been a month and I have gotten lazy. I told myself I wasn't going to do any shows in 2012,

but I have to, or else I will just loaf around and not challenge myself at all.

This painting is from a photo taken in the beautiful little village of Canones on the backroads of Abiquiu Lake. I would love to have a little hideaway up there to escape to - just take off for a week or two and go painting. Maybe one day.

This painting was painted alla prima and I kept taking my glasses off so the image would be a little blurry. Looser brushstrokes that way. I am very happy with the result and it has given me the inspiration I need to keep going.

  1. Dee - this is beautiful - I feel like I say that a lot but your work (which has always been good) has been really spectacular lately. I keep thinking I couldn't like anything better than something you posted but then you keep surprising me with even more.

  2. Cara,
    Thanks - maybe I should paint without my glasses - the less I see, the better the painting turns out. Hmm. Thanks and I hope to see you soon.
