24x10" oil on birch panel, 2019. Sold.
I painted this during the quick-paint at Olmsted Park, Atlanta, for the Olmsted Plein Air Invitational in 2019. When I know I have only two-hours to paint a painting, I work out my composition and paint piles ahead of time so that I can complete my painting within the prescribed time. All that matters to me in the end is not the amount of time I took to paint but rather, "Did I paint a good painting?"
