I don't want to scare them away, but I do believe the muses have returned and I have two new works in progress, each following a very different approach.

This first is a scene based loosely on the Philadelphia Italian market, an absolutely wonderful place to be. In this case my intention is to paint it piece by piece, completing each section as I go along with little or no under painting, similar to the way I use watercolors. What does not show up very well in these photos is the fairly complete drawing on the canvas.

The second piece will be an autumn landscape of my own creation. Here I am starting with an under painting on which I will add multiple layers of color to achieve the finished results.
