Medium: Oils on Linen

This is an example of what I consider a somewhat primitive, abstract, folk art seascape painting. As a style it remains among my favorites and reminds me of the way children approach painting: simple; colorful; no rules. At this point in my life that approach does not necessarily come naturally and yet I continue to be drawn to it and think it is worth the effort of reconnecting to that childlike approach.

Oils on Canvas

In post #105, September 18th, I explained my plight with an out-of-square canvas. Aaron Brothers made good and framed it at their expense in a simple wood frame with a lip that was meant to hide the problem. It does a good job but minimizing it but it is still a bit out of square. I prefer the painting unframed, but it just cannot be.
