Park

'Park' 18x24. pastel on sandpaper with a pigment dispersion underpainting

Furthering the quest for expressive work
I was forced, by being unprepared, to sit down with this subject. I wouldn't have chosen it. I was in the mood to paint water. (when am I not in the mood to paint water?) I was happy to find that my paintings are not so much empowered by subject choice as they are by what I do with the subject. I didn't even realize how good this was until I got over my frustration. That took a whole 24 hours and many positive comments from viewers.
