Out Pike Lake Way

Out Pike Lake Way
6 x 6"
oil on board

This week I tackled my huge, intimidating (yet exciting) canvas. It is 48 x 48 inches and inspired by the beautiful wild prairie surrounding my friend's newly purchased acreage. It is about Wolf Willow in that landscape. Because I am painting the scene in oils I have had to take the time to let things dry before I move on, so while that happens I also got some odd jobs done around the studio, like making shadow boxes for my 6x6's, wiring some cradled panels, and purging B-R-U-T-A-L, nothing salvageable canvases. They are giving my studio bad karma- they must go. I also decided to paint a little 6x6 which you see above. It has been a good, productive week at 236A 20th Street.
