This is the third and final little rubber robot toy; this one is kind of a speed racer.  He was both hard and fun to paint.  He’s very small and yet full of so much detail, but the detail is so tiny, it’s hard to discern.  His little face is actually not very detailed and kind of strange looking.  Each of these little guys is in fact a slightly different color; one is more bright green, one more army green, and this one is in-between bright and army green.

I aimed again for looseness with these last two paintings; it continues to be a struggle to overcome 20 years of painting habits, but I’m not unhappy with these.

It isn’t enough to have the eyes of a gazelle, you also need the claws of a cat in order to capture your bird alive and play with it before you eat it and join its life to yours. That is the mystery of painting.

  • Gosh I really do love these works. These storm formations are so exciting to actually see. I think this one is my favorite so far. If I had a spare $250 I’d buy it in a heartbeat!
