landscape, "Red Osher landscape" 16X20 oil, $350

Every once in a while I take a break from plein air work and see what's in the visual vocabulary which means I extrapolate from the things I've learned painting outdoors and let her fly in the studio. This effort was accompanied by jazz saxaphonist Philonius Munk. Another thing going on here is the use of a 3 value technique. This kind of work is emmensly gratifying. The spontenaity is cathartic. It is working without a safety net. Nine times out of 10 the effort isn't worth saving. This piece is unusual and a pleasure to have on the wall. It exhibits my profound attachment to the environment as my greatest inspiration.
