When I do something fast and colorful and easy to live with-I wonder why I don't do more like this, and more often.
Am I such a masochist that I have to agonize over a painting before I take it seriously?
I've always tended to dismiss paintings that seem to come too easily, possibly afraid of becoming facile. Yeah, so?
This was done on gessoed masonite, starting with a brush and then what the hell, laying the paint on with a painting knife.
It's only PAINT, after all.
As a result of the painting being on my website, I got an email from a "student" in the Midwest who liked it and asked if I'd send her a larger image, meaning (she hoped) higher resolution.
To repeat. I don't think so .
