Two shows need work for later this month, so I've been working on larger pieces. This one is 20x24, Oil on canvas. I had the design from one of my zillions of photographs of gulls, and I just concentrated on design and paint application... It is agony (in setting up the design and that 'math', as I call it) then fun (digging into the paint and using free, expressive strokes), then agony again, as I look at it with a cold eye and decide what does and doesn't work and doing the 'editing'.
First show is at the Spring Bull Gallery on Belleview Avenue in Newport, RI. It's called "A Sampling Of The South Coast Artists" and will run the month of May. I will have 3 pieces in this. Then I will be the featured Artist at Sea Rose Cottage Thursday, April 25, from 5-9 in Bristol, RI on Gallery Night.
