I've been playing with painting from some of the photos I took on my trip out west... toying with the idea of creating a body of work for a western show. Could be fun. Here's a vertical landscape on which I've been working. Still intrigued by the play of light on the fields and the sense of distance. As I've mentioned before, its a similar challenge to painting my beloved Carteret County marshes in eastern North Carolina. This could almost be seen as a marsh as well.

So far we've dodged the rainstorms and are enjoying partly sunny skies for this week-end's art show. I enjoy this show - many of the other artists have become my friends and Philadelphia's loads of fun. There are many good restaurants and shops within walking distance of the square. Sharing a big new abstract painting too, we'll see how its received. Will send a snapshot later when there's a little more sun on the booth...
