I feel like I've been on a roll lately. I have done a few paintings in a row that I like pretty well. I think it has something to do with some interesting subject matter, or the time I have been putting in, or maybe it is just a re-dedication to painting. Whatever it is, I like it. Last week, I had a great day at Blacks just shooting photos. I got some shots that I am excited to start working with. So that excitement, with feeling like I just finished some pretty good paintings is nice. Its fun to feel this way again about art.
This painting came about after I happened to run into my good friend Nathan Petty at Bigrock one day. As we were talking, he said I could use any of his images to paint. He has some great images, and I have painted from his shots before, and was pretty happy to work on this painting. I love the colors, and the shapes, and the focus on the throwing lip. Its a really fun image. I think this shot was taken just before another shot he took that I painted and posted about back in March. Nathan is a really talented photographer.
