Winter Copse

Most painters probably experience this occasionally; work that seems clever at the time is sold and later, on review of the photo, looks unresolved and embarrassing. Just as often, a temporary frustration causes me to destroy something that actually had promise. I could fill a gallery with worthy 'lost' paintings. Oh well, I live in the moment in my studio. Here`s an example from last winter that didn`t survive.
oil on canvas 30"x24"

I like all the pictures you have on tree trunks in forests. You get them a very beautiful color harmonies. And when I wake up I see and enjoy the imagination to think of new compositions, with extremely oblong formats eg.

Congratulations. A friendly greeting, Randall.

Me gustan todas las pinturas que tienes sobre troncos de árboles en bosques. Consigues en ellos unas armonías de colores muy bellas. Y cuando los veo y disfruto me despierta la imaginación para pensar en nuevas composiciones, con formatos muy apaisados por ejemplo.

Felicitaciones. Un saludo amistoso, Randall.

Randall,
This is my first visit to your blog and I will be coming back!
I love your work for so many, many reasons!
Your colors are magnificent! Your paintings all have great moods. I love seeing your paintings progress through their various stages. Nice!
Hope you get a chance to check out my blog. Not too long ago I also started to show my paintings as they emerge from the canvas during the creative process! I love the way you showed yours!
Thanks for posting for all to enjoy!
Your new art buddy,
Michael
