Bluegrass Vision, 30x40, Oil.
A Kentucky girl, I watch the Derby each May. This year I decided to try and capture the grace, color, and thrill of the race. I photographed it from "live" TV, then chose this shot to composed my painting from.
I hope you enjoy this little visit to my studio, taped during the progression of my "Bluegrass Vision". There is a building process, from laying in the background with large house-paint brush, through forming the structures, the horses, jockeys, silks. I try to let the painting emerge in unison. Yet, clearly keep my intended focus sharper than the rest.
Check out my other little visitor:
Joel, do you know if someone was in my studio, while I went to the airport?
I wonder how those extra marks got there??
"I did it, with my fingers!"
