(221) After the Race
8 x 10, oil
Several of my regular readers have asked why I'm painting from photos instead of life now. It is temporary. I just needed to explore a new direction and work with more complicated subjects for a little while. The best thing about the blog is I can go in a completely different direction as often as I need to keep the challenges fresh and fun. Perhaps you've noticed that I resist being tied down to painting the same subject day after day....(Jerry Seinfield would add "not that there's anything wrong with that...")
