On My Easel...almost there

Still have to deal with paint quality.
I need to pay attention to the sky.

On My Easel original small daily painting Art Of the West 10x12 work-in-progress

Embarking on a western theme.
Slightly larger format, I enjoy the linen surface.
Also, I really love the feel of my new brushes.

Testing...on my easel

I hate changes...

I have been stubborn long enough, expected different result while I keep doing the same thing.
changes have to be made.

I am taking time to figure out why I paint, how I paint, paying attention to my brush work, paint quality etc..

best of all, I quit taking photo of my work at the end of the day in artificial light,
I've wasted so much time and energy with lighting and unavoidable glare.

On My Easel 6x6 oil work-in-progress

this is my most satisfying work in all my 15 years as an artist with closed to 3000 paintings sold on eBay in the past decade.
it's only a rough blocked in, but I think I found it_ "myself"_...don't know what that really mean found myself, it's just something I've been looking for all these years as a painter although I didn't know and couldn't name what it is exactly looking silly me. Oh well!
