In a previous post, I described how I was learning to abstract my work, by painting without my glasses. My first couple where plein-air pieces, and I’ve just started a new set of studio works in this style. It’s a lot of fun! Lots of juicey paint. I think I really like this direction. Over the next couple of days/posts, I’ll show you more samples of this work.
This is the first one I’ve done. It’s a tributary along the Truckee River. I took several digital photos recently. I don’t paint from printed photos, but rather digital photos projected on a TV, usually from my digital cameria, but a video Ipod works as well.
