update: by gardega

I have been slacking on the ole blog lately. Deadlines and other matters dragging me in many directions. I am back into the paint which is nice! I just finished a decent Deluge painting (part of my series) that is 4 x 5 foot. It has a certain harmony..I walked around it (the canvas) for a month before I hit it. Then it was a matter of two days. Sometimes it is harder to find harmony in a simple painting than a detailed labored work.
