I'm still pumping my body full of vitamin C and trying to kick this cold/flu bug that has set me down but I did feel well enough today to break out the paints for a few hours. The simple fact is that if I do nothing all day but sleep I feel like I am wasting opportunities and at the end of the day I feel worse than if I got my body moving. I may not be able to get on my bike and put in a two hour ride but I am well enough to flick paint at a canvass for a few hours.
Those that follow my work know that my bread and butter is watercolor and that only recently have I branched into attempts at canvass painting. For this work I forced myself to do it quick and very loose. I tend to keep my paintings tight and well defined but as I branch out I decided that freeing my style up would be a good thing. This isn't as finished a piece as I would like but it is a decent study for a subject I love.
This work is titled 'Chattooga Angler' and it small enough to hang over your desk at only 14x11 in. Acrylic on Canvass. It is FOR SALE and as it is just a quick study it is cheap. Send me an email if your interested.
