'Lean on Me'

8" x 10" oil on panel

Or, 'lime and orange on aluminum pan under track lighting,' if you prefer. Again, my photo is horrible...too much glare and the painting looks ten times better in person.

Painting a subject first hand as opposed to staring at a computer screen is much more challenging and, as a result, much more rewarding. I'm beginning to think painting first hand is more artful (if that's a word), as well. I think I'm going to try and shift more toward outdoor painting and still life. I'm looking into travel easels at the moment. In fact, I need to up my bid on ebay...
