I have been sketching, working on ideas for future paintings, and moving forward slowly on the Pathos of Alexander painting. I guess it shouldn’t be a surprise that a painting with that heavy a title is weighing me down. The whole indirect painting thing sometimes feels like I have entered quicksand, but I will persevere, whether or not it is warranted.
I couldn’t wait to paint the animals at the Kate De Lane Farm after I returned from purchasing eggs there. The animals came running toward me and it made my day. The other scene is of rowers on the Delaware inspired by older LOC photos and the works of Thomas Eakins. Both are for sale locally. Kate De Lane Farm can be purchased at Duck Soup in New Hope, PA, and The Rowers will be for sale either at the upcoming A&C small works show online and in Doylestown, PA or the AOY show in Yardley, PA
