PAINTING OF THE MONTH

Serendipity
Oil on Linen
Image 16 x 20 - Framed 22 x 26
$2100

Some artists are so full of ideas about what to paint they could never complete them all in one lifetime. Others, though they may have great skills, are clueless about what to paint and are happiest when someone commissions them to paint something. I fall somewhere in the middle. I have many images that I want to commit to canvas but also like to be available for fresh inspirations. One painting frequently leads into the next one but occasionally the chain of thought is interrupted. At those times I often grab a few simple, familiar objects, take them to my studio and play with light and composition and color. Chopin might have called them ├ętudes, Beethoven bagatelles, I like to think of them as serendipities....
