Waiting - NFS

"Waiting", 16 x 12 In, Oil on Raymar Panel
For the last few years I've been working with mostly smaller panels and I didn't think I could go back to the larger ones I painted 20 years ago. But I'm moving up! I'm actually taking old paintings and sanding them down and painting over them. There is something extremely satisfying about doing this. It is also March 21 and the sun came out today--the winter may not be completely over, but things are changing--the new rhodies we bought have buds and one is starting to bloom. If anyone around here wants to buy rhodies, I highly recommend Rogers Rhodoes. Paul Rogers has the nature of an artist--rather than miles of canvas, he has miles of rhodies and he can't seem to stop himself from acquiring ever new varieties. You have to see it for yourself. Be sure to wear boots.


  1. Great analogous colors! I really like the "light from the window" feeling I get from this. I think you have beautiful grays again, and it's fun to see how a hint of green works so well in the shadows.

  2. Thank you Roger! I appreciate your comments--
