Sitting On The Job

Oil/masonite panel
Plein air

I was on my way to the beach to paint the waves but....... I happened upon this construction site.  And I'm glad I did.  This one felt like it painted itself.  It was one of those rare occasions (for me anyway) that the process from beginning to end felt pretty damn good.  Relaxed, in the zone and my brush and paint doing what I intended.  To be in that zone to me is like meditation.  The composition in this one struck me as there really isn't much perspective.  Foreground and background and not much more.  It's pretty much a profile, but it's the shapes and colors is what did it for me.  Near the end when the birds landed on the power line I knew it was near completion.
