Today I feel like I REALLY painted. I mean really flinging the paint around (lol), and creating a juicy loaded surface. Well, everything is relative I guess, but it was a breakthrough for me and I was having fun: looking and looking, mixing the colors I needed, and getting them onto the panel. Basic, right? How satisfying to just work. I may feel differently about these paintings later, they can use some tweaking here and there, who knows I might end up scraping them all off. But for now I’ll let them live as witnesses to a good day of work.
Anyway, how can you go wrong in a landscape like this?
You cannot go wrong.
Went back to look at the sketch/painting I loved….”mountain in white with mauve haze”* these new paintings are beautifully graphic too with more motion. Wonder where you are going…cezanne, Mont Sainte-Victoire, or diebenkorn???
*Maybe early Milton Avery and color infatuation Mark Rothko. lb
I am thinking a lot about Milton Avery forms
Outstanding. Happy that you found what you were looking for and more in this unique part of the World.
I really like your paintings.
Thanks I really like your blog, you’re showing me corners of Iceland that I will not get to see…this time anyway. What a place.
