|White Pumpkins and Roadside Purple oil 9 x 12|
This is the second "quickie" painting done to regain a sense of balance within the bounds of painting exactly what is in front of me through direct observation. The light source was a studio lamp. The canvas was pre-toned in a warmish neutral. White pumpkins have always been thrilling to me. Added to that is a bunch of roadside wildflowers that carry a vibrant purple that can be seen from afar. They always pop up this time of year much to my delight.

|Pumpkin and Nasturtium oil 12 x 9|
This canvas was pre-toned with a warmish mix. Day 1 left me feeling satisfied...painting only what I see, and foregoing all that I imagine. It was healing.

|Equilibrium oil 30 x 42|
I am now realizing that I needed to declare a value dominance of the work, one that supports the mood that I am trying to achieve, in addition to the playful distribution and linkage of values.
This lesson was learned the hard way.
