Oil painting on textured canvas 24"x 20"
"Early this morning I knew this painting was not going to be the one that I had planned. After lunch I quit fighting the canvas and let the painting dictate to me the colors and the values of those colors. Orange was the color that I didn't want to use but there it is and I'm happy with it. This evening I've declared victory and will start the next painting."
