Oil on linen cavas
from the series for the new gallery
here is the new big one 100x120cm. I don't know what title to give it but we'll wait until it's closer to being finished and then you can decide.
a view from the studio. The cloud on the left hanging from the rafters is a prototype for my kid's school party. I'm organizing all the decors...

I've thought of three titles.
Tell me which one you like best and if you have another idea leave a comment.
is the title voted, thanks for participating
100x120 cm oil on canvas
This will be either in my show in May or in the salon in June.
I working with a different technique than normal, less alla prima. Last week my studio neighbor asked me when I was going to stop painting by numbers. I didn't flare up, offended, but I did try to justify myself.
He said I could do better. So I thought about it.
He graduated from the Beaux Arts de Paris and is teaching. I may not like his work and think he's a failure of an artist because he's a teacher. This is a rotten unfair opinion, life is different for everyone, he's younger than I, has a few kids. I can't consider him a failure because he is teaching painting but I do.
I thought about what he said and I like him because he says what he thinks straight in your face.
I decided to try to paint differently and here is the result.
Thanks Phillip, you've helped me free my brush.
You're a teacher who see people's qualities. I appreciate your opinion. Now get your ass in the studio and paint.
