This is a blog about painting: specifically, representational fine art, generally, using oil paint. I think a lot about what I'm doing, and those thoughts about subject matter, technique, influences, frustrations and delights all show up here. It's all about the journey.

Order vs. Chaos
The foreground in this one can easily collapse into confusion. I've been painting in dark areas that will eventually be covered with medium-to-light tones, but I have to also keep an eye on patterns, ripples of darkness and light in the marsh grass. Otherwise it's just going to look like static.
