I painted this one yesterday in one shot. I never intended it to be this minimal, but something is telling me to stop. This photo was taken under studio lights, unfortunately. It’s been a dark and rainy week here. Colors used: Italian yellow ochre, ultramarine blue, burnt umber and titanium zinc oxide. All Williamsburg brand paints.

Can any painter do anything blurry without thinking of Gerhard Richter?

Abstracted scene of a threatenening sky at sunset over a meadow with trees in the distance.
Looks a bit like rain is coming.
9″ x 12″ study… A quiet place with many fallen dead trees in the water.
Often, I see Great Blue Herons standing in the debris, perfectly camouflaged, waiting to catch a meal. Also, white egrets and woodpeckers come here, and turtles sun themselves on top of the logs.
I left out a lot of details… the abstraction of the place was more important to me.
