In recent blogs I described my process of revisiting and updating earlier artwork. Here is an example of a painting that I "finished" a few years ago, framed, exhibited and yet when I looked at it this summer I realized I had to repaint the entire canvas. There was not one area that lived up to my current standards! The way I see things as an artist is constantly evolving - becoming more refined and better equipped to perceive composition, color, line and perspective. It's amazing what a difference a few years can make!

"Low Tied"   24"Wx24"H framed to 30.5"Wx30.5"H   Oil on Canvas              

Viewers may not immediately realize that "Low Tied" is a square painting - it is painted on a 24"W x 24"H canvas - because the composition keeps the eyes moving from boats to jetty to distant islands to boats again. The subject is an idyllic coastal afternoon with picturesque boats moored onto a rock jetty that separates 2 distinct bodies of water. Distant islands are seen on the horizon against a cloudy sky with bright blue areas peeking through.

Until next time,
