9 to 5


8x10 oil on linen

Just something I did last week on a piece of loose linen. Wanted to post one more before the weekend. I'm off to Houston for a live event painting. Yes, I am still doing them. though I am trying to stop. Cutting back at least. I'm focusing more on work specifically for galleries and shows now.

Had a great morning painting today thanks to something I read in "The Artist's Way" yesterday. It sparked me to try less hard... if that makes any sense. Read about it here.

welcome to the club, I mean I'm a perfectionist aswell. Look at my blog, look at the four oranges I painted. Wait, my level is not that high, but I started painting cause I like doing it. But what you see is that the harder I try, the less the result. Or don't you agree?

Love this too Robin! You're able to capture the mood and lighting with a few brush strokes. Thanks for linking to the post on perfectionism.

I love this painting. The light on his feet and how he blends into the shadows as if you can feel the sun rejuvenating his bones but he can only take so much at a time. He needs the cool shade to relax in the warm to pick him up to go at it again. This painting is all about balance. Well done!

Love this painting! If I owned a shop, I would want this hanging on the wall.
