Pyrites Complex

I had so much fun with the knife yesterday, I decided to cut up again.
First pass.
Along the Grasse River in Pyrites NY. A well known local landmark.

After the Rain

 I took the photo last summer and it's been percolating in my head since then.
Today was the day to pour it out. Still some to do, but when it started flowing it poured out pretty quickly.

Flyover

Flying over the Adirondacks, sun was rising, moon was setting, 
cloud tops looked like water, and mountaintops looked like islands.
It was hard to digest visually, even tougher to paint.
On its way, though.

Barny

I started this one just to paint & experiment a bit. 
Not sure if it'll make it to the finish line, mostly because I wasn't concerned
with the foreground/background, and it's kind of a mess...
but it could be a good mess with some work.
I took the photo the other day, from the side of road hanging out of the car window.
I'm naming it "Buckton Barn".  Just in case I get back to it.

Study in Payne

Never used paynes gray before...and I won't use it like this again.
Not sure where it goes from here, except up to dry.
It's at least a cool little study.

Pallette

 A few months ago I started depositing my pallete scrapings on an old canvas board.
At first just haphazardly. As time went on the wipes became a little more controlled,
not particularly on purpose, but just because I really couldn't help myself.
The last couple deposits have been absolutely intentional.
Today I just really noticed it.
 It may be just my connection to it, because I can see all the colors of all my works over the past few months. But I like it.
Abstraction is like jazz.

Tree Work

I'm not a big fan of the foreground silhouetted schtick (or painting them for that matter). 
Although the tree is in the reference photo, my intent was leave it out.
 But compositionally, it needed it to help balance out the dark on the other side.
 So...it's there, and still needs more work...
