Just a couple of quick notes because I must move on…to Sky Pads 25. I’m running out of room, which is another way to say that sales aren’t keeping up with production. But let’s not go there for the moment. I’ll be working on getting someone to build racks across one wall of my studio, which should take care of the issue at least temporarily.
The only differences between these two are in the darkest areas. The photos look pretty similar, but the painting in real life really pops now. Click on either painting to open the gallery for a larger view which will make the dark/light differences more visible.
#25 will be much more tranquil–I think. The background reminds me of gentle foam washing up on a beach instead of the rippling, pebbly water of #24. I still have to do the drawing for #25 and transfer it to the canvas, so it may be quite a few days till you see me again.
