I’ve devoted myself to working in traditional oils for a little over a year now. My approach has been to create one to three small paintings each week. When reflecting on July’s work, shown above, I thought it might be fun to compare it with the efforts from July 2017.
Painting is like keeping a diary. It was interesting to read what was important to me a year ago: July 2017’s Paintings
I definitely spent more time flower gardening last year as half of the paintings were from my reference photos from flowers I tended. The most obvious shift is subject matter, from flowers to animals. Maybe, a more subtle, mature handling of the medium from last year to this year? Not sure, but hope so. Always want to be challenging myself and making new discoveries.
Of one thing I am certain, is my continued, growing fascination with oils and creating expressive, animal portraits. This awareness has prompted me to completely revise my website.
If you visit it, you will also see my 2019 Art Calendar of which I am especially pleased as I feel it represents the heart of my work.
