I had a few requests for some 'details' from yesterday's painting. I'm loathe to do that for several reasons. Chief among them is my uncertainty about what you'll see. Between my monitor, my wife's, and our two phones, I have four different color versions of what I post. Multiply that times all of you, and who knows what possible fidelity there may be to the real image. Second, because I do a lot with somewhat arbitrary focus or sharpness in my paintings, often bits taken out of context look quite strange. They are part of the way I selectively try to lead the viewer through the painting.
Ah, well, having said all that----effectively refusing to take any responsibility for what you see on your monitor----I'll attach three details. Bear in mind that they are all still in process. Sometimes I will change something ten inches away which then requires that I modify what you see here. So no promises about these looking the same at the end. (I am pretty sure it won't change to snow, though).
Before I add them, just a reminder of the talk, demonstration and crit that I'm giving tomorrow night, 6:30-9:30 p.m., at the Newburyport Art Association. Come if you can, and bring one painting for a quick crit if you'd like.

These all seem a little 'contrasty'. Sorry.
