The flooding in Boulder jerked my painting to a halt. My home, a continuing care retirement community,
sustained horrible damage. My apartment stayed dry, but the ensuing shifting of procedures and rooms has been daunting. My studio in the art room had to be locked as computers salvaged from flooded areas of the building are being stored there until their hard-drives can be copied. I did manage to finish this painting started before the flood. The real painting is not so nearly purple as it shows on line. I used several coats of glazes and I think that threw off the camera recording. "Sea" is 20" x 30" in acrylic on wrapped canvas.
Here is another start to finish series. To better understand fog and distance, I looked to Randall David Tipton's work. He graciously gave me permission to interpret one of his paintings. I did it on a 36"x 48" museum wrapped canvas.
Some of my friends asked to be able to see the process a painting of mine goes through until it is done. After it is finished, I wait a few days while it is drying to evaluate it upside down and in a mirror. I often see ways to improve the color or composition. Then it has to dry again! Finally I sign it front and back and name it.
