Plein air painting at 8:00pm in 91° heat.
I took lots of pictures at different times of the day. This is around 8:30pm.
The gas station scene from the movie.
Not the original van but close enough. Yes, it still runs!

Apples study in the abstract. I set up a traditional stillife and dumped these apples off to the side. After I wiped away my block-in of the traditional setup, I glanced over at these apples and decided this would be a better subject.

This is a painting from about seven years ago. I painted this when I was doing one small painting a day.
Recently, I've started reading a few of Ruth Chew's books again. I loved these books when I was a kid. Whenever there was a reading fair at school (RIF- Reading is Fundamental), I bought up these books and took them home. As a child with a wild imagination, these books really appealed to me. I loved the topics of witches and magic. I also enjoyed her artwork. She was an illustrator too. The older books have her artwork in them.
Opening these books again, I'm almost transported back to being a kid again, maybe by some sort of magic.

This is the way I like to paint. A few strokes in the proper place and leave it. Less is MORE.
