every now and then, i try to be a painter

sands point preserve

but then, the chemicals make my skin peel. maybe i shouldn't wash my hands in the turpentine, no?

this painting was done en plein air at the sands point preserve on long island. i made three paintings that day, and this was the first one, which ended up being my favorite. i guess i should've heeded the words of the wise man kenny rogers, who said, "you got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em, know when to walk away, etc."

sorry i let you down, kenny.

Atmospheric and moody, so much like fog!

It's a beautiful painting. It's foggy even though you used brighter colors than most other foggy contributors. I love the loose painterly style you used.
