Week one. April 2013.


I'm chewing on a variation of this winter's question. I think that I can paint just enough information for viewers to want to jump in and supply their own details and story. Too little info and the painting is unengaging, too much and the painting becomes about my story, not the viewer's. Where is the sweet spot?

Delmus Deacon's International, 6" x 8", oil on panel, $150 framed.
Visit my web-gallery at to purchase this and other paintings and photographs.

A neighbor has been selectively logging a few acres for several weeks now. Every time I drive out of the hollow and pass this truck I'm surprised at the huge jolt of pleasure I get at seeing the bright splash of blue in the dull-tan woods.
