This painting was done last weekend en plein air in Malibu. The colors were intense! At least that’s how I see them.
This is from an outing on Saturday. I would like to do it again soon, larger…
This is another version of a piece I did last summer.
And here’s a process shot of the more recent painting. I was tempted to quit at this point, because I kind of liked what was happening. Do you think I should have?
I like to paint a self portrait on my birthday or other auspicious days like New Years. I gave my students the assignment for their final and thought I’d join in. Then I thought “I really should do this more often (like every day)” but haven’t gotten to it just yet. I’m finally posting this at least–it’s from last Thursday, May 28!
