Causeway II, 12″ X 40″
Finished; Aug9, ’13

Finished this today; the third in the rain series. I find I’m anxious to return to crisply focused image; perhaps a urban street shot.

The strange color of these rain pieces opens some new possibilities of  exploring subjective color. There has been so many years of

working with objective color, (as if there is such a thing…), makes this seem somewhat shaky. It also feels a bit like a welcome

return to my painting of 40 years ago, where intuitive and impulsive color was so important. It’s also time to get back to the

60″ X 65″ canvases, which always feel more challenging and to have more substance, from the git-go!
