I spent the better part of this afternoon leafing through notebooks from late summer. Sometimes I’ll see something that inspires me, but I’m busy doing something else. So, I make a quick sketch or two, and jot down written color notes on whatever paper I happen to have on hand. Now that I have an iphone, I also write quick e-notes and take memo-photos to use later (to help me remember colors or ideas). I love running into those things, and having a memory stirred.
After reliving a bit of summer, I started on this larger piece after the sun went down. It’s 24″ x 48″, and this is just the underpainting.
