24x32 oil on wood
The unground parking at Target on Colorado in Pasadena has yielded three paintings for me. I spent a little time making this one a little more finished out as I was trying for a real subtle light effect. I gave the shopping cart a golden moment as a way to make a painting technique serve as a droll comentary.
Many contemporary modern artists don’t realize that painting skills give you more of an expressive artistic vocabulary. They have bought the lazy idea that good technique is somehow makes you a more limited artist… How did that idea take over the art world so completely? I'll do my favorite artist thing later.
See you there
