I’ve been working on miniatures – it’s that time of year again – oil paintings that are no larger that 25 square inches.
This painting is based on photos I took after a summer rainstorm in my neighborhood.

Another example of a quick model sketch I did a number of years ago and finished ‘from memory’ recently. The original work had just enough information for me to complete the study. In doing this work I am concentrating on finishing the painting to aesthetic considerations, not trying to remember the details about a person I worked with briefly years in the past. In all of my paintings I come to a point where previous studies, reference photos and all such materials are put aside and I finish the painting according to what the work requires in order to make a good painting.

I chose one of the quick sketches of a live model that I did a few years ago with the intention of finishing it by memory. This was an interesting exercise, because the young man who emerged in this painting is not as much the original model as it is another young man with whom I am familiar and feel emotionally close to. Because the original sketch contained such a small amount of concrete information I suppose my mind took over and expressed what I was not aware I was thinking about, bringing the awareness into full consciousness through my artwork.
