Sketchy and Free

 White Sunday, 24 x 24

My kids (who live in Alaska) have been visiting in the past few weeks, and I've been painting with them, but not too much at my own easel!  I did White Sunday, above, just before they arrived.

Even though I didn't bring it up to my usual "finish," I liked it... so I signed my name and ran it to Huff Harrington Fine Art here in Atlanta -- whereupon they sold it that day.  There is something expressive and a bit exciting when just parts of a painting are developed, leaving other areas to reveal the initial inspiration and hand of the painter.  I am still noodling this idea, but plan to experiment a bit -- just like Eli and Sarah!
