A Different Kind of Painting

Galveston Island. 16×20 inches. Acrylic and oil on cradled wood panel. $300

Today was a good day. I had breakfast with John in the Heights and we talked about some very exciting stuff for the future. Afterwards I sat in EQ, my favorite coffee shop with my art on the walls, and wrote.

I wrote a little bit about the horses, made them more present in the story, included their names and their temperaments, the way Suzanne feels about them. I think this adds an important element to the story.

When I got to painting in the evening I ended up making something that’s very different from what I usually do. It’s the oil stick on top that makes it so different.
