On the Rustaway Plan


Sometimes things get filed or forgotten or lost and then there they are, again, and you realize that they were "pre-studies", idea paintings, or flawed versions of salvageable compos. Maybe they are okay, after not looking at them for awhile. You get the digital out and started shootin'. You get them in the compu-library and edit and you realize you got some tolerable stuff. Maybe not the ones you'd put in your self-directed bio epic, but some fun stuff nonetheless. They are your own personal art history. You can say,"This was the first version of a later painting that sold to a fancy private collection or I gave to my Grandma cuz she was the only one that liked it and she's only a little blind." And then you start thinkin', I am an artist, this will be in my autobiography, better organize them figure out the dates, gotta be accurate for the students when they are studyin' my life......Then you have some lunch, maybe a little nap and never think about it again, cept you got a whole bunch of new old pics to show the unwary visitors to your new post. Ha! Bink Me You Fool!_________________

Good treatment of the rocks and grass Ron. Looks like you went a different rendering direction this time.. look'n good. I see you had fun mixing color on the body of the car too.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks W.K., these are paintings I drug out from under the bed. The last three are old.

Ouch! Looks like he hit on the wrong pink cadillac!

Ron Morrison said...

Yes, he was crushed.

Michelle Smith said...

Is it the rock laying next to the car that caused the damage? You must have quite a collection of paintings. Glad you're pulling them out to show your fans.

Ron Morrison said...

Hi Michelle, its a funny thing, how they look better/okay after they have hidden out for a while. I like the"idea" of this one, maybe I'll revisit it later on.

i miss the incredible backgrounds you do so well on this one but the car is tops, IMO. i especially love the 'bouquet' growing out of the empty wheel well.

Ron Morrison said...

Hi Foz, I put some foregound in, instead. Its old.

Cara Dawn Romero said...
