Zangle Cove - ON HOLD

"Zangle Cove", 10 x 12 In, Oil on Museum Board
Sometimes I want to close my eyes and paint--not just in my imagination, but with paint actually coming onto the canvas. Maybe it is a kind of physical/mental metaphor for painting without having any thoughts about how it should be done--those thoughts that are so hard to get rid of. This is a 10 minute painting done from the view out the back of my house "with my eyes closed."

  1. Love this Kathy, especially the brush strokes. Also you have really captured the color harmony. You have a talent for that. Done any watercolors lately? I picked up a nice paint box of Winsor Newton Watercolors in New York City at an amazing art supply store called New York Central Art Supply. I had discovered their online store last year so I "had" to look them up. It was worth it. They have an amazing inventory.
    blessings my friend. R

  3. Feeling, palette and mark. Love it.

    A bit Bomberg/Auerbach-esque with a touch of Soutine action painting stylee? I really like it.
