Summer painting

June 28, 2009

Summer in the South.  Think heat; think humidity.  The area in which I paint does not have air conditioning.  This time of year it is best to paint early in the morning and in the evening.  The paints are softer and it makes knife painting a bit tougher.  But I enjoy the painting process enough that I can paint no matter how hot it gets.  The painting sessions may be a bit shorter, but I am pleased with the progress I am making.

While I am enjoying painting, I find I am beginning to work on a new subject matter.  The first hint of this is posted on my website and is titled “ree”.  This move to people is being developed through several canvases.  We will see how this goes.
