Birches On The Stillwater

October 13, 2020

Unseasonably cold and rainy here in Montana. It's, well, gray! Lucky for me gray has, over the last year or so, gone from a fastidiously avoided color to one of my favorites. I'm often layering cool Payne's Gray or warm Portland Gray over an underpainting in warm reds, oranges, yellows and magentas. Some days I paint some days I scumble!  But rest assured I'll be making marks on canvas rain or shine.

Here's what's on my easel today.

They might as well be dead.If the rain comes, if the rain comes." ~ Lennon and McCartney
