"Heading Home" ©

This small painting was an experiment, working on a new surface for me. It's a gessoed panel that is ultra smooth, like glass. Wow, this panel will be added to my inventory of blank canvases and panels. Having a lot of blank materials to paint on may be a continuation of what I learned carving stone. If you have several stones in your inventory, you can work fast without fear of not having another stone to carve and it frees you up to try an idea, knowing there is always another stone waiting in the wings. The same seems to be true for having a nice selection of blank canvases and panels.
This painting is the view of my walk home from Sierra Highway. It's being cleaned up and trees seem to be disappearing, so construction is on it's way but for now it's raw and wild.
