From here to There

Shadows and Snow, 8 x 10 inches, Acrylic on paper 
                                 Available at DPWS



Sometimes the only way to plan a painting is to paint.  This week for the 30 paintings in 30 days I wanted to work on loose landscapes.  Pick acrylics as my medium because they dry fast, which keep allows my hands to work faster than my mind sometimes.
 Of the 4 done so far this is my favorite.  This has hints of subjects in it I can explore further, I see a small house or barn still not defined, suggestion of either a morning or evening glow to the sky, and a landscape of shadows yet to be explored.
   It is interesting what developed form the first lay down of colors and lines, so I thought I would also post the beginning of this work.
   I am looking forward to finding out where the now finished small landscape will lead to.

the beginning
