"Tomatillo's Undressing" - SOLD



My second title choice was "Various Stages of Undress." : ) I did a large painting today of white roses and I re-realized something really different about painting small vs. large. With a small painting it is a lot easier to keep the whole thing uniform - to keep the momentum all the way through - to keep it fresh. I loved the large painting during the first few hours but ended up hating it at the end. I lost the idea halfway through. I lost something. I've had a drink since then to ease the pain, so I apologize if I'm not terribly coherent. ; )

Perfectly coherent - but maybe my glass of wine is helping me spaek the same language.
I know what you mean by small vs. large paintings. I come up against the same frustrations when I try to paint large.
Really love the colors in these tomatillo paintings.

Looks like he's getting ready to make a snow angle. Hope my Corona isn't slurring my thoughts. :)

poor tomatillo is looking very helpless : ) i've spent almost a year trying to paint smaller with the hope that it'll help me paint more loosely and now i'm neither here nor there :D

So naughty! Love the colours!

Heh, heh! I completely agree with the small/large problem. Do you think big brushes, would help get it on there quickly? I've been concentrating on the small ones, and am terrified to start again on bigger pieces!

I love these tomatillo paintings, they are gorgeous! The colors feel so refreshing.

After visiting your website and viewing your large paintings, I must say, your large format work is so alive and smacks of your unique, compelling style. Maybe the large size format doesn't speak to you right now, but your larger pieces sure look beautiful and cohesive to me. I would love to get to one of the galleries you show in to see the originals!

Very understandable - I painted small for the first time in a very long time today and found it extremely strange.
I must learn that small does not have to mean tighter - your work is such a great illustration of that. I must ban my small brushes

ACK----I know the pain of small to big & the great risk of losing spontaneity &&& then interest...I'm almost relieved to see that it is a shared struggle! Your work always comes across to me as so fresh & vibrant...never "has a leash on it"; there's that contrast of control vs. "letterrip" looseness that's so exciting to see in a paint surface. All in all, I always find it interesting - the inner struggle of fellow artists to express what they want, how they want...... Paint on, woman- your work inspires as always!

More rocking grays to set off the vibrant greens! Controlled looseness.
Don't be so hard on yourself, you kick oil painting butt!
