I'm going out of town for 2 weeks and I don't know when I'll be blogging again.
So I'll leave you all with images by one of my favorite painters, Kim Dorland, who hails from Canada.
I like how expressive he gets with such ordinary subject matter.
And his color palette seems all wrong but is just totally right on.
The problem with looking at art like this on the internet is that it really is so much better in real life.
There are so many textures and applications of paint in a single painting - the actual styles of painting are as juxtapozed as the subjects are.
