Just thinking and remembering....not using any external reference at all. I hope this method will become a consistent category in my work. While I've used the method before, there don't seem to be very many of these.

This is perhaps a companion piece to the forest view with red ground.....the paintings do link up on strange informal ways.

...a few pieces from the couple of days. I do try to make one piece per day, but there are a few days missed overall. But in the last year or so, I don't think I've missed very many. I think today's piece might end up being a fully abstract collage....I never really know until I sit down with the materials.
Top piece is (Sold)

From the Churchyard...I sometimes stop at the churchyard at the top of the hill. I can see for miles in a number of directions, and it's interesting to walk through the graveyard and read the aging headstones. I sit on the big boulder with an inscription that says there's a time capsule buried beneath...and drink my coffee. Acrylic and pencil on unprimed Whatman paper 10 x 13.75 inches, image size 8.75 x 12 inches.

While the whole business of making a picture rests upon formal means, the picture is never a type of pure abstraction. The picture is always about something in my world.
