Day 14 - Forty Paintings in Forty Days
I worked in the studio all day coating giclees and painting customized jockey silks. I didn't make it over to Oklahoma until around 3:30. Afternoon feed time would proceed shortly as I set up. I felt rushed and distracted and it showed in my painting. Dealing with mud again in the tree although I looked intently and it was the same value as the background of the barn except for the dappled sun. What a mess of paint I slapped on.
White Bandages, 10"x8", oil on panel
I do like the indication of the bandages. You know those horses have their heads buried in their tubs in the corner. Lots of stomping and hollering a few minutes prior.
