“Warm Green”

Green can be a tough color to deal with some times. In this painting I got it to work not just perfectly for me but beyond my expectations.

Painting is very difficult. If you are a format painter like Alex Katz or Wolf Kahn one can crank work out endlessly on the same subject. It is a sort of a trap. People want a Wolf Kahn,they want a New England barn in some bright colors. Change your style as Larry Poons did from elliptical colored shapes and sales go down. Not being a format painter leave room to turn mistakes or unexpected shapes and forms into a new pathway to seeing things in a different light or way. This painting took awhile to get right. Eventually, ┬áit’s as if green led me by the hand.DSCF3536
