Dick Schellen's sent me this photograph. It shows my painting in his London apartment. There it is, over his fireplace. Dick cut down the original painting to a detail (look at the post of 12/22/2010 for the entire painting). Obviously this is a virtual photograph in a virtual apartment. I love it! Dick's background is in graphic design. He was reading my blog and watched this painting load on his screen, line by line, from the top. It stopped loading at the detail shown here. Dick's astute, graphic designer eye, enjoyed the detail, free as it is from too much trivia, and lush in it painterliness.
Yesterday allowed me just over an hour in the studio. I produced one drawing. And again, the limited time produced good results. Urgency of focus has its benefits. Today I will have a good chunk of time in the studio. Plans are to draw and continue finishing work on the painting "Pond."
It is snowing again! Already there are four inches of new snow on the ground. Beautiful stuff, but time consuming in the requirement to dig out.
