Sultry Searcy County Day
18X24, Oil on Panel
Here is a larger version of a study I did a few weeks ago. I have not painted this large in a while. It was nice to see this one come together as quickly as it did since the last relatively large piece I did took several months to work out.
Being the lazy blogger I am, I have a rather substantial backlog of pieces to post, including some new counties. You'd think I'd be in a hurry to post new counties. I'll get around to it soon.
I have also recently learned that the Buffalo National River has canceled all artist residencies going forward due to budget cuts. I believe that mine is the first one being cut. It may be a blessing in disguise though as about half of my residency was going to taken up with teaching a workshop. While I would have enjoyed the new challenge of teaching, I think I need to be spending most of my time in the act of painting. I still plan on going to the river this fall and camping and painting just as I would have during my residency.
