I’ve been feeling the need recently to be more deliberate about my painting, more contemplative, maybe, and develop some themes regarding people’s relationships to their places, but I have been so active mentally on other things, that I haven’t really been able to or wanted to focus on close painting studies on a day-to-day basis. Perhaps that will come soon.
In the meantime I am just trying to stay active and try things out. Here’s my Aunt’s dog hearing something disturbing and rising from a nap. I love the effort and contortion he’s going through, just to tell off some small chirping thing. Sometimes there’s natural poetry in apparently simple images, and I don’t need to underlay theory.
I have posted in reverse order from completion back to pencil drawing.
Corey, I love looking at your work and reading your ideas. The fertility of your mind is always an inspiration to me. Thanks for your openness with these blogs.
What a .surprise to see Winston’s awakening! I love this.
Boy, so much life in this painting. Thanks for sharing it!
I love this, Corey! My very favorite of yours so far!
Thanks! Mine too
Corey, this is wonderful! You have really captured him and the moment. I love it!
