Studio and Pine

6 x 8 inches, oil on board.

This is the same shed that appears in my previous painting, Old Bethpage Pine.
Perhaps I was born in the wrong century, or maybe I want to live in a more rural environment. I'm very attracted to scenes like this. I would like this building to be my studio, with big doors I could have open in nice weather, and hopefully friends and neighbors who would visit for coffee or a beer in the evening. Maybe someday.

Where do I sign up for coffee or beer?

I hope you are able to get a lot of work done while I am in Utah. These paintings of Bethpage are great but I am ready to see some pictures of the west now. I wish you were here.

Chris: It's strictly BYO at this point...but I can offer you a nice paper cup and a stool.
Kay: Me'll be a challenge without my muse. I'm working on my first study of a wildflower meadow on Mt. Hood which is near Portland. I'll post it when it's done.
Austin: Thank you for looking, and for your comment. For me, loosening up has, and continues to be, a lifelong desire and struggle. I naturally tighten up. But I want my paintings to look like paintings. I don't want people to wonder if they're photographs.
