Day 20, 21. Crap, it's almost over.

Wednesday. I went for a run and had to go to a funeral today. Studio hours moved to evening. School starts in about 2 weeks.

Thursday. Worked on an impromptu grant app. Completed it, but it took the better part of the day. I should be able to knock these things out blindfolded, and yet, there I sat, tapping away and selecting images.

"Hollywood Drifting" 2011, oil on linen, 10 x 8 inches

I love this painting. It looks as though it confidently sprung forth, through uncritical, yet focused concentration. Please don't tell me if this was not the case.

I really love this painting.

thanks. I won't burst your bubble but the 1st pass might have been better--but as usual I overshot it and then tried to backtrack. The major difference is her stance. In the first one she looked a bit more Gauguinish and like she was trying to run towards us. I didn't catch that until later and I wasn't able to get the stance back. So now she's cocky or maybe pissed since she's no longer able to escape.

Love this, wow. love. Why, do I love it, because, the daring of the colours, the vibrancy, the attitude. the art historical reference. the fun and seriousness. that log in the lower left... the paintingness.
