50 Paintings in 50 days
I finished this painting on Saturday night very late after going out. It was particularly difficult, I'm not sure if it was the fact that the board was sanded too smooth or it was the transparency of the paint. I could not get the right color intensity and my dark shadows were just not working. I think it still needs work and I don't feel it's as good as my other pieces. At this point I was still behing about four pieces.
What can I say? I have lived on a whim all my life. When I was six years old my mother put me on a float in a parade dressed as a Gypsy. It was to set the stage for my transient ways, my love for new and interesting experiences and my search to avoid the boredom of everyday life. In a nutshell I seek the unusual, but my art subject is solid and conventional, in that respect I enjoy common subjects and the beauty they hold. I will try to post as many of the paintings that I have completed and my progress in this challenging hobby. I'm inspired each day I wake up, enjoy!
