Sugar Mill Nocturne

Painted this one night a couple of weeks ago.  My painting compadre, Linda, and I were amazed at what a busy place the mill is at night.

The more I paint the less interested I am in representation for it's own sake.  Using reality as a start point for explorations in design and color are becoming Much more interesting to me.

The painting Knife is also holding much more charm.  Odd as it sounds, brushes have become awkward to me in the last couple of weeks.  Paint in brushes feels like too much gum in my mouth, congestion and claustrophobia - weird eh?   Knives seem much simpler and more direct - a challenge to use in their own right, but feels much cleaner...

Please stay tuned for new works -

And as Always - thanks for taking the time to look at my work and read my blog!
