Untitled Landscape III


Untitled Landscape III
40" x 30"
Oil on Canvas


I like this size. It feels large enough to be considered a larger painting, and yet it is still a manageable size. The palette makes me think of paintings I have done in the past involving water and flowers. It feels familiar and new at the same time.

Untitled Landscape I

Untitled Landscape I
40" x 30"
Oil on Canvas

I finished this piece months ago, it was sort of a catalyst for me. I've been working with landscapes for a few years now, and with each painting, I feel that I have more to see and to explore. I just recently finished a commission that was based on this piece. I will post that soon. 
I plan to do a lot more landscapes in the near future, I get hung up on titles. I'm thinking of forgoing titles for now. 
I think some paintings benefit from a title, it's easier to reference them, that is for sure. I prefer to not give these specific titles. I don't think they need them, and I don't like to sway the audience.
