Old Painting

December 18, 2017

Going through my garage looking for Halloween-appropriate art, I came across this rather large (for me) oil on linen.

They are, clockwise, starting from the horse, a horse (maybe a mule–no way to tell without the lower jaw), a gorilla (sadly, plaster, the only fake item in my collection; I woud kill for a real gorilla skull), human (I have the rest of the skeleton in the garage), baboon, cheetah (I’m definitely not supposed to have that; I could tell you how I got it, but then I’d have to kill you), klipspringer (a small antelope), and a daffodil to take the edge off.

I always forget to update this blog. Here’s some new stuff since October:

The “Tomatoes” watercolor is a replacement for another painting of the same subject I sold. Dauna, Hatch, and Peter are from Kate Huntington’s portrait painting session. I’m experimenting with imprimaturas again (every 40 years, need it or not). I can’t help but feel it’s cheating.
