Happy 2017 - 2 New Landscape Paintings

This year my goal in the studio is to paint more regularly, to avoid distractions and to produce more work. So, to that end, I plan to do a small painting a day. The nice thing about the push to produce a complete painting quickly is that it leads to a more spontaneous looking piece, which is what I am after. The paintings serve as studies for larger formats, and provide a means to solve various problems presented within each painting. It is the process of  painting that delights me. And, producing quickly is a challenging, productive and fun way to begin the new year. Here are two of my quick studies.
