And we’re back!

As some folks know Lance and I moved at the beginning of July, and both the build up to it and the aftermath have been quite intensive.  Suffice to say there hasn’t been much time for artwork.

However, after a month in the new apartment I have my studio set up and I have finally finished some painting!

The past two weeks have been devoted to the Echoes series, something I’ve strayed away from last year.  I stumbled onto Russian artist Isaac Levitan who’s work is truly inspiring for landscape painters.  His work provided an emotional touchstone and inspired me to rethink where I want Echoes to go.

I pulled out some reference material and returned to a field that I’ve painted in some smaller pieces.  This time I went larger, colder, and tried to balance the mix of impression and realism.  I’m quite happy with the result.  What do you think?
