This was an interesting project, someone asked me if I would paint a small version of a larger painting that I did a few years ago, to fit a frame they already have - 7 3/8 inch width by 5 3/4 inch. It was interesting to revisit an older painting and think about what I might have been thinking about at the time I painted the first larger (16x20in) painting. Here is a link to the first painting
Oil on canvas panel - Öl auf Malplatte - huile sur carton entoilé
7 3/8 inch width x 5 3/4 inch
I left for a couple of days to get inspired, in Portland OR. Lots of cool things in Portland to see and do! The Portland Art Museum has some great paintings to see. Portland has some very cool coffeeshops. One coffeeshop that I loved was Random Order, on Alberta St, it is kind of random, like the name. They serve pies! Sweet pies, savory pies, I didn't know how much I liked pies until I had their Coconut Cream Pie. Cupcakes are out, pies are in.
