Blue Tarp on Angel's Hill (Taylors Falls, MN)
10 x 8" oil
Apparently it's oils this week. Still trying to find my way around, but beginning to enjoy the tactile, plastic surface qualities --- who am I kidding? What I like is being able to have as many "do overs" as I want, and that's what oil gives you. Unlike watercolor, where you are committed pretty much from the get-go. Anyway, this is my attempt at trying to not be too sweet in choice of subject matter, as Angel's Hill is a historic neighborhood full of really picturesque, quaint gingerbread houses. So I pick the sideyard of a garage, just to be ornery.
