In-Progress Oil of Newton, NJ, 17" x 30", Oil on Stretched Linen
Doing spec work is pretty common for an emerging artist. I met with the developer of a new upscale residential building in Newton, called Aberlour, back in February to try to work out an arrangement with my art as closing gifts. Unfortunately he had already made a purchase, but was interested in my work and suggested I paint something to hang in the building that he might buy or sell to the new owners. This is the state of the painting now; it's not quite where I want it yet. I must get into my studio before the paint dries on the palette, so return to my blog next week to see changes in the painting.
