March 15, 2007


Forgot how nice it is to get a quick landscape in with the warm setting sun on my back. Full on Spring weather up in Marin- great colors the hour before sunset, and nice to hear the birds and see all the animals emerging as it starts too cool off from the increasingly warming afternoons. Kinda like these little canvas boards- after painting on masonite I now can really appreciate the tooth of the canvas.

very nice mister...both this one and the one below.
gosh,Ian, i havent painted on canvas in a long long time. i still have a few blank ones in the closet. just too worried about moving and having to deal with a wet canvas if i started on them. hmmm.

James- you should use liquin as a medium- takes about 2-3 days to dry- but youre right- oil can be so unstable-
