6x6 oil on panel board
This is a painting from my workshop with Karin Jurick last week. Throughout the week I learned many things. In this painting I learned not to fuss over the details, learned the freedom and the courage to "edit" what I saw in the photo to make it my own. After all, I am painting a "painting" not a photo.
It was great taking photos in the city, there are so many subtle moments I captured and when the lighting is right wow what a difference a painting can take! I captured this on my way back to my girlfriends apartment on the Upper West side, she ironically lives on the same street of my very first apartment when I lived in the city (sigh) oh how I miss my city but happy I visit regularly.
