Quantum Poetry Finished and Close Ups
Put the finishing flourishes on this picture today and I am happy. It took me a while to realize where I wanted to go but once I made up my mind, it all came together. I am especially pleased with the jockey and his bold brushwork. I like how he seems to be disssolving into the atmosphere as he strains to keep his seat aboard this soaring black beauty.You may be able to see that on the close up photos. And an update on the Willcox Inn exhibit - the crated paintings arrived safe and sound 3 days early! I never heard of that happening before - lol! Did I tell you that I have had a case of severe separation anxiety since shipping them? I wonder if other painters feel that way - but I almost called up the shipper to tell him to ship them back to me. I was able to restrain myself but I do miss them terribly.
