June 19, 2008 Alone, but not Lonely and Clouds (unfinished)

step one, oil on board 16x20
Last night's storms were awesome. I don't know why, but I decided to to a -straight -oil. My sister said, "oh no, but your pastel are so nice."
Stretch. I guess that's why. I am having fun sliding around. It will take longer. More on this one tomorrow. I used my photos and my amazement at the show and began to work. It is wild to be able to mix colors on the palette rather than optically (which I tend to do with pastel.)

9x12 oil and pastel on board
I did this one yesterday out in the field near the merrill center. Finished it in the studio today. I am trying to give visual image to concepts and feelings.
