2017 Adventures in Fine Art

Snowbound in the studio for a week it was a great time to rework a painting from 2014 that never felt real. I was trying too hard to stylize my brushwork and it ended up looking cartoony. Now that I have resurrected the painting I enjoy looking at it.



North end of Agate Beach 18" x 24" oil on canvas

This one started as a plein air study this summer but the bottom rose was just a red smear. I gave it some definition without over painting the piece.
