Another painting from my Adirondack series.  These men knew what they wanted for their Saturday night dinner and were ready to do what it took.  Of course with the small outboard motor, whey would have to hang in their spot for a while.

    I just wanted to say I've been watching you paint over the summer, your daily paintings have greatly improved.

Hay Maze about halfway This is where I put that rich background color in.  Notice some neutral colors in with the bright.  I wouldn't want all bright green here as it would be like all caps when texting.  I'll re-post the final Hay Maze below:

Lots of changes from the halfway point,  I added shadows in the hay and a little here and there.  …

Bloomfield Shack in September

5 x 5 inches, Oil on Gessoboard
I've painted this many times and every time I drive by the actual shack, I have to stop and look/take more pictures to work from.  It's hard to admit that one smaller shack could inspire me so much.
