Day 28 #stradaeasel
I took a cup of hot chai outside and sat in the back yard watching the stars. The moon was resting in the trees on the other side of the house. It was far to dark to see my painting panel, so painted this inside the house with the lights on.
Day 27 #stradaeasel
This oil sketch was an attempt to capture why I am drawn to gazing into the part of our garden every day, every evening, every season, all year. I will keep trying until I make it, and probably after—with great joy.
This Old Man became my model after dinner today. His face was carved into the root of a bamboo. His hair and beard
are simply the root itself. The smooth stock, only suggested here, became his body.
