Inlet, Route 214

 Inlet, Route 214
Oil on canvas, 10x10, $100
Everyone says the colors aren't going to be so great this year. I disagree!

OK, maybe they are not going to be as crazy gaudy, as eye-burningly brilliant as they sometimes are (and I do love them that way) - but they have this golden, glowing, bronzy, burnished tone to them this year that I am really enjoying. It's made even more sultry by the low gray skies we seem to be having, nearly every day. Those clouds do something wonderful to the colors.

In a week - less than a week - I am heading to the Outer Banks of North Carolina, to get away, to see something new, to paint. I am so excited, I can barely contain myself. Man, do I need this!

I will be posting new paintings from the road - also, I am trying some new stuff, some paint that dries more quickly, some gels and other goo that I can add to speed the process. So we'll see how it all works out. However it does, I am sure I am going to have a great time.

The joy must originate from the contemplation of the painting as a work product. I, so love the work because it look so real. A friend of mine appreciate the beauty of it while I'm reading the blog. Have you added some Owatrol paint additive?

Thanks, Shea! It's a great compliment, and I appreciate your enthusiasm and support, always.

Thank you, Michelle! And thanks for sharing, too. I have not tried the paint additive, but appreciate the tip.
