Cuba

Posted by Picasa

This is a small oil that has a big presence. So much texture. Sometimes the paint just flows from the brush and it was like the brush took over. 6x6 oil on hardboard.

I really like the way you handled the people with your brushwork. Just enough detail. Nice!

Love this painting. Once again your talent amazes and amuses - such character with so few strokes and such joy through color. Thanks for the peeks.

Thank you Edward, I find it really fun to convey an image with less detail, yet have it recognizeable. Still a challenge to me.
