Angled Approach, 8×10, Oil on Canvas Panel, SOLD
For the last six months I’ve been exploring painting subject matter that is new to me – landscapes. The learning curve is often fraught with emotional highs and lows as I sift through what works, or more notably, what doesn’t work. Some days I emerge from the studio victorious. Other days are a wash in the literal sense as I end up wiping a days worth – or sometimes the entire week’s worth of work off and pretend in my mind that it never existed. I do know however, that in the big scheme, win or lose for a day or a full week’s work, it all counts as hours of experience at the easel.
Recently, after wiping painting after painting off, feeling totally defeated, I felt that I needed a confidence boost. So I painted a horse.

It went so well and I felt so good, I painted another angle of the same horse.

In all, I painted three horses in a week and a half, and with each painting I felt my confidence rebuild enough to face being green at my landscapes again.
