Original oil - 6x6"
This is a little 6x6 I did from a photo last year, quick and fun, I loved the rhythmic patterns and simple, abstract shapes.
I have to say it was great to finish painting for a show right at the end of the year. Now it feels perfect to launch into the new year tackling some fresh subject matter and continuing to keep that bar moving higher.
There are 3 tough competitions coming up in the next month and a half that I will be painting for. Here are the links if you want to take a crack at them as well:
- Scottsdale Salon of Fine Art (1st annual) (Deadline Jan.15th)
- Greenhouse Gallery's Salon International (Deadline Jan.21st)
- Oil Painters of America National Show (Deadline Feb.18th)
I'm rooting through my resource material looking for the most exciting, challenging subjects I can find. This is what gets me jazzed to get into the studio, it's so fun to step waaaay out of the comfort zone and watch what happens...
