Earlier this winter friends and I enjoyed a hike in Marin County’s Tennessee Valley. That day it rained on and off but we managed to stay fairly dry. Yesterday was a day of late season rains that kept me in the house. The results are a series of 16 4”x4” paintings based on that afternoon on the trail. I deliberately forced myself to work quickly. Any painter knows the trap of going too far and overworking a painting. It’s frustrating when you get a work done and then keep going and, well, ruin it.
