In Process: "White Blinkers," 16" x 24", acrylics on Raymar panel depicting a Thoroughbred race horse, inspired by one seen in the paddock at Keeneland Race Track last month. This painting is available for $1899, which includes special delivery to your doorstep (inside the contiguous US) - inquire directly to me. In process photos here. And can I take just a moment to pat myself on the back? I am totally in love with the things that have come off my easel since The Kentucky Derby. Which was the #BestDerbyEver. Just saying.....
Giving Into My Gut - Circumstances this last week or so have demonstrated to me the importance of listening to my gut. Instincts are there for a reason, and while they cannot be measured with logic, they are spot on correct.
Which I think is one of the reasons why I have had so much success with my most recent paintings (What's a Little Mud, Swishy, Stallion, Sprout, and Dark Brown or Bay), all of which have come from a conscious effort to listen to the piece and put down the marks it asks for, even when they seem ambiguous, random, or contrary.
Based on the response I've gotten, you are appreciating the results as well!
And someone should add these paintings to their collection soon - my gut is also telling me that down the road, these breakthrough pieces will be highly valued.
Thanks, as always, for following along with my artwork!
