I plan on making two paintings for the 250th Anniversary of Lyme, New Hampshire. The first one was begun yesterday. I am obligated to deliver these new Lyme Paintings by the end of next week (June 3), so they will not be long-winded, nor second guessed. This is good, as I will return to my regular work more quickly. I did have fun with the first painting, and show it below. It depicts the Civil War Monument on Lyme's Green, with a detail of the steeple of Lyme's Congregational Church. The verticality of the soldier is important. Further enhancement of the soldier's features will be important too.
I made two drawings yesterday. They are good ones. My ability to emote every aspect of my human figures is rapidly increasing. I feel as if my niche in this world is opening its doors to me, and I have the ability to find that niche through continued work. I am not there yet. Drawing #2 is better than #1. As I better understand myself the stuff I know will spill over and into my paintings.
