Bumble bees spend the summer hovering around my garage door and pollinating the flowers in my garden. There is a little hole just the right size in the eve of my garage. I think Mr. Bumble's family live in my attic and I like it.
First I painted my original 20 minute horse and rider. That was kinda fun. I painted another. Then before I knew it, I had a horse race happening right here on Derby Day. This is a big canvas and I am sort of flying blind, in that I don't have a reference photo to use. I am really liking this.
more to come.
my original 20 minute sketch was indeed in vane. That horse and rider was replaced by another more to scale. I left my original rider just beyond the fence. I am aware that posting works in progress in a logical way that makes sense and is somehow allegorical is an art in itself. What that means is that the one in the middle is first, the one on the bottom is progress and the one on top is finished.
thanks for looking.

I have been at my son's wedding in St. John, USVI this week. Cindy and I took a tour bus ride around the island and stopped here for a photo opp. Oddly enough some of the 80 or so in the wedding party were swimming here at Caneel Bay when I snapped the shot. Look closely and you will see a very pale young turk walking in the shallows. Yikes. I may just move here, but just not today.
