Gray Day



"Soup Stock"
oil on linen on panel, 8" x 10"


Painting on gray days is VERY different than on sunny days. There is no shadow . . .at least discernible shadows. Then there is the insipid magnetism into the details of the rocks! EeeGads I got lost on this one. Then, out came the palette knife . . .not accustomed to using it . . . to see if I could do something with this painting.


There are some who love this painting. I guess you can't please everyone all the time . . . . . .........especially the artist!! But, I remind myself, this is practice . . . .a means of learning . . . . . . . . ....... . . .trying new stuff . . . .and one cannot expect glorious results every time.
