field study. 60" x 48"
inspired by this from last week.

i have no wall space left in my house. i wanted to snap a quick shot of this painting so i went to the girls room, the only place with a big enough white wall and a bit of light. kind of rough, but you get the idea. 

i love working on large canvases. i love the freedom of space and really being able to put myself into the painting. i usually work on the floor, so i am literally on top of the painting, reaching and moving around it. 

i am also in constant need of perspective. and a different perspective. so no matter how large the piece, i am usually carrying it from the studio into different rooms of the house and yard, to help me see what needs to be done next. weird? i don't know. it's just what i do. i also take on and off my glasses so i can see it blurry and clearly and blurry again. 


  1. gorgeous! I wish I had more blue in my house- you do such beautiful work in those blue and charcoal and black colors.

  2. just discovered your lovely blog and i'm really loving this painting. so beautiful!

  3. thanks so much molly. i love your aesthetic, so that means a lot!
