Revisiting a favorite subject. I have wanted to use this white linen tea towel in a still life for sometime. It was all about getting the composition to work with the red stripe. After more than a few challenging tries of pushing the towel around, rearranging the oranges, I found a setup that spoke to me… (click on the image to see the rest, and her blog)
I say: I’d hang that one in my kitchen for sure!
John Farnsworth (my pops) introduced me to this painting and this painter. Here’s what he said about it:
I like the graduated light and the road over the hills arrangement of the red stripe.
His daily painting today looked like this…
INDIO Oil on Panel / 6 x 6 Inches
I spent the day today at the Indio, California Dog Show. This thing is HUGE. I read somewhere that there are some 3500 participants. I could easily believe there are more. I’ll try to get more details tomorrow. Today, though, I got about 500 photographs (I hope that over time, that will result in ten paintings and five or six salvageable photographs [for his daily photograph blog]). I also managed this one painting of a Basset Hound that I call INDIO, from today’s shoot.
I say: What a face!!
