Battles Won & Lost






Some days, painting is like breathing, you just do it and it comes. Some days it is a struggle and a constant battle the whole way. Then, there are those days in between. The paintings I like best are either the ones that paint themselves or the very hard fought ones. The other kind, usually go it the round file. They just don't have the same fire. Today was a good day. Battles won, battles lost. All good.

Incredible work, each of these works is excellent. I understand each is a pastel painting it would be interesting to know the size and how long each one took you to create. Maybe a bit about how you work too.

I understand, entirely, the feeling of contentment when you look at a painting and know that it has almost painted itself.

These are fine paintings.
