Man Oh Man

Man Oh Man
Oil on Canvas

As the Old Year draws to a close I am rife with wonder about what on earth I think I am doing. I really like what my friend, Ellis Heyer says in her statement:
"Everything is ultimately a landscape. Heaven is here on earth, my task is to open my eyes, see it and paint it." To read the rest of her statement and see her paintings, click here.
The truth is, I don't know what I am doing. But not doing, is not an option. I am thinking about going back to cows for awhile. Or memories of Maine. But I also want to continue the Museum Goers series at the new California Academy of Sciences. And I really like the man walking in the painting above. Maybe I will concentrate on figures in motion. Ever since I was told to stick to one subject I have flitted around from thing to thing as if my creative life depended on it.
