Methods and Madness

Sometimes I paint fast and loose

Other times quite controlled

The subject decides the method

But each work has the same goal:

A painting that is successful

And beautiful to behold!

Quints' Jam

original watercolor with woodwind quintet: 14" x 17"

licorice whips

it’s relative you know

but one thing’s for sure

this group needs a horn
