fifteen minutes changes everything and creates a new twist a new turn. a new... resume.

"Walk Back In" 20x24 oil on linen covered birch board

This was past painted (months ago and with much less flow) I felt like yesterday was an "act on your immediate feelings" with full palette and knife in hand I put paint on, scraped and put more down (3 x's to be exact).  This was a learning experience... chances taken are better than chances lost.

That sums up the day.
Enjoy Sarah.

"Outside Song" 10x8 oil

paint over...advantage, texture and color pops.

today was morning drizzle, not the best of runs for me.  my studio time was limited so i chose the "paint over" day.  i escaped into music and oil.
