Profligacy

I try to finish every painting I start. Some are less conclusive than others. They may suggest some idea that I'm not ready to recognize yet. Or, more likely, they are overworked and the good bits have been muffled in the clash of my mixed priorities. Such is the process of making pictures all the time. I am so fortunate to squander so freely!  Here are few outtakes that have some buried possibilities. Maybe.

Crystal Cities 2014-2017 book for sale

I have designed and self-published a second collection of Crystal Cities drawings made between 2014 to today. It's available here. This paperback tome is 176 pages, full color printing on nice paper. A few poetic essays are scattered about to distract the reader. The cost is $35.00 US and it's worth every penny.

Yikes, Stripes!

The question hardly ever varies: what to paint? I stare at the open sketchbook in front of me and a fully charged watercolor brush in my hand. What is the most elemental motion? Shall I draw a representation of a thing? Shall I simply transfer the paint from the brush to the paper in the most honest and efficient way possible? And after I do that, what do I do next? I will often paint stripes. They look pretty and they reacquaint me with the colors on my palette. And then what? Is it a sampler of colors? A paint chart? And if it is just a paint chart, I could add a bird or two. Or a castle. Or some flowers. I have a crazy, self indulgent job!
