Here is a sample of some of the small sketches and paintings I have been playing with over the past couple of months. Most of them are 6″x6″; some are oil crayons or water-soluble pencil on paper or canvas paper; some are acrylic on canvas paper; some are oil on canvas. I consider one or two of these to be completed works; most of them are just stretching my fingers and my imagination; who knows where this exploration will lead?
Here’s another small sketch done on the train from LA.
We took the train to LA and back last week, and I brought some small art supplies and tried doing a few tiny paintings on the train.
Nothing much great happened, painting-wise. Ostensibly, one could say I painted 5 little paintings on the lurching train, but I wasn’t happy with anything I did there.
So, I am reworking them, one by one. This is the first one I completed since returning home.
