"LOOKS LIKE CLEAR SKIES"
There are many reasons that I love painting. But what I love MOST is the sense of discovery! Every painting begins with a blank surface and I get to DISCOVER the means of creating the person, place or thing that belongs there.
In the case of "Looks Like Clear Skies", I wanted to paint a small portrait, loosely with lots of color. I chose a turquoise ground to complement the reddish orange flesh tones and allowed some of the ground color to remain. Voila! This fisherman exploded onto the panel. Bold beginnings beget bold paintings.
