Sunset Pond, 1990

12x9 acrylic on canvas board
Collection of Brad and Lynn Oltmon

When I had a make-shift studio in the basement, I wanted to paint something. I went down one evening to find something to paint. I decided to derive a painting form a Walter Foster painting book "Landscapes You Can Paint" written by William Palluth. I painted it to learn the techniques that were being presented in the book. Marge came down when I started to paint and 90 minutes later when I had finished. Size and using a work that had some problems worked out helped with the time.
