So far this year, I’ve been working on some small studies for larger works.  I may post the studies when the larger works are done, but that could be awhile.

In the meantime, here is a small watercolor pencil painting on paper from a couple of days ago.  I started from the point of continuing my thoughts/impressions of Bontecou, but decided to aim for a simpler design and a slightly subdued (for me) palette.   I love how this piece turned out!

The dignity of the artist lies in his duty of keeping awake the sense of wonder in the world. In this long vigil he often has to vary his methods of stimulation; but in this long vigil he is also himself striving against a continual tendency to sleep.

  • You know, when I saw Crater Lake, my first thought was that this sight is absolutely impossible to paint. I didn’t even try. But you managed it!
