"Storm From the North"

Oil on Cradled Masonite
$110 includes domestic s/h

This is another painting from my day out in the country last weekend. The sun was glistening off the stubble as the dark clouds were moving in. I am teaching on Wednesday mornings for a while so I actually painted this yesterday knowing I wouldn't be able to get to the studio today. It was one of those afternoons where nothing was going right and by the time I got to this painting I was in no mood to worry much about what came out! I just decided to use as thick a paint as I could get and try not to use little brushes much. In the years past, I have always painted quite thin--blending and blending so you'd never see a stroke and there would never be any texture on the surface. I've secretly wanted to see some juicy paint for awhile, I think!

These are shots from the class I am teaching. It's on using the color pencil. It's a great group of talented people. As you can see, they don't always have to work in the dark. . .
