A bunch of bananas and mineola tangerine 5x7
Oil on 5"x7" Gessobord
I've been a bit uninspired to paint lately. I couldn't really find a reason other than every time I tried to think of a subject to paint, I'd ask myself "why" I wanted to paint it. If I didn't have a good enough answer, I didn't bother painting.
I took some time and re read some of my art books, found some new and interesting artists blogs online, and I realized something I already knew. A painting isn't as much about the subject as it is about the colors and patterns and shapes that make it interesting to look at. It at least made me feel like painting again, and I'm happy with this one.
