Little red shack
For some reason I tend to avoid vertical compositions. Since I do mostly land and seascapes, I suppose that's not too strange. One warm sunny day I was painting with my friend, David Jonas, on a farm near Morro Bay, Ca. and this little structure caught our interest. We set up side by side and started to paint. I tease David (who does move slowly in everything he does) that he's the only person I know who could be overtaken and killed by a glacier. I finished well in front of him, and yet, the paintings were pretty similar. In years of painting together, that has only happened twice, if my memory serves. Mike.
