From Afar . . .

Am in Yosemite National Park, Painting. Yes, that is all I am doing here . . .and, believe it or not, I am actually fried . . .that is to say, tired!!! I have been working hard morning, noon and night. Up early and at the easel . . .then outdoors to the magnificence of this place and try to choose something to paint. The choices are actually easy . . .stand in one place . . .just about anywhere . . .and there are 10 to 100 paintings within mere paces.

But that is not what I am here to share. To close the loop from the last post, the linemen are finished after five (count em!) that is Five separate paintings until I deemed it finished. I was searching for something near perfection for this piece as I have ideas about putting it into a show soon. We'll see.

Try as I might, the photo seems a bit edgy, though the painting is much softer. I am not sure what to do about it, but will be paying attention to that next week when I return to my studio for more painting.

The title of the piece is "Pole Dance." Watercolor 18 x 24 inches
