FOR THE SAKE OF THE SONG

RIVER TUNE     11x14     oil on linen panel
I'm going through past work, looking for possible entries in upcoming shows.  This one is from last November on the Pedernales River.

When I'm working on a painting that gets into a nice groove, and things begin to work together, it often reminds me of music.  There's a rhythm, a key, melody and harmony, and it's all played against contrasting elements. When it's right there's a feeling that comes with it that makes it all so worthwhile to paint.
