Blocks No.5


18 x 18 oil on hardboard
When Jeff at Stricoff Fine Art, and I talked about new paintings for his gallery, he expressed an interest in the blocks, so I was happy to oblige. We communicated recently, and he was glad to have this, and Place Setting (see Dec. 10th post) as well. I'm always a little nervous when I send images to galleries for approval, so it was a relief when he reacted so enthusiastically to these two paintings. There was also some discussion about sending these to the L. A. ArtShow in January. I'm not sure why I'm so excited at the thought of having my work in Los Angeles. Whatever the reason, I hope they make it there.

To be able to paint and have it come out looking so much like a photograph has always been my own personal goal. Attempting to draw/paint in any form has made me realize that it isn't easy even getting a childlike effort and yet you've mastered what I consider to be finest type of painting around. These old fashioned wooden blocks are just phenomenal.
