A Simple View – The Haphazard Affair – Lost Red

#43 – Tuesday, January 10th

A simple view of why I love the Southwest. Hiking the Upper Sonoran Desert, in January.

Beginning is a haphazard affair. This one starts in graphite and charcoal. Spritzed with water to get the charcoal in motion, and a wash of Aureolin Hue (an earthy yellow). These last few canvases have blasted out with a profusion of color and decidedly active compositions. An exciting jump into the exploration they promise to provide.

From last week’s post . . . another red . . . that makes a total of five. This canvas titled “Sparrow Field . . .” is from two thousand six , and I have to say, another painting with a decidedly active composition.

Thanks for reading.
