6"x6" oil on linen panel
Keeping on with the farm theme, here is a Maine pig. Don't suppose he is that much different that a California pig, or a Virginia pig. He was quite the interesting guy, but more interested in eating than looking my way, other than a short glance.
I keep working on painting more, doing less, to say more. If that makes no sense, here is a translation: I want to paint as much as possible. By painting more, and getting better, I will be able to simplify the subject down as much as possible, to be able to show the most of the essence of the subject, rather than just a reproduction of the subject. Now, you may think I've taken a step off the edge, or that my "little grey cells" (so says Hercule Poirot via Agatha Christie), have gone on vacation. Could be. I wouldn't completely rule it out. But I know where I want to go with my painting, and what I want to say, which is a step in the right direction. Hope you follow me on the journey.
