Butt on Base, Acrylic, Pastel, Charcoal on the Washington Post by MG StoutI need a new camera. I've known it for a long time. I've said this before but I really do. Today I completed two paintings. I photographed both works and I am very UNHAPPY with the images, but this is an art blog.... how can I not post what I accomplished in my studio? I apologize for the poor quality of the image, but hey at least you have an image to look at. It was a great day to paint outside and so after I taught my morning workshop, did some paperwork (which never seems to end) I grabbed my gear and set up on the quad. Ahhhh, grass between my toes, pastel all over my fingers and the sunshine on my face. Life is good.
