Yearwoods, 2010, oil/panel, 48" x 48", (click to enlarge)

My interest in form and light continues with recent studio work. I've been working hard. I know it, because I'm doing a lot of revisions on each painting. Sometimes I'll spend the day wiping out more than I paint. I'm trying out things in order to discover ways of presenting form and light to viewers that get closer to my sensibilities. This winter I'm enjoying the sustained effort of day after day in the studio. Nonetheless, at end of each day there is a feeling of uncertainty; I can just as easily feel that the day's work was a waste as opposed to being excellent.
