This oil on canvas on board around 20x26" I started this a year or two ago .. It hung framed in my last show in August 2012. Today I pulled it out of the frame and started to break back into it ... we'll see where it leads. Anything you would like to see happening here feel free to mention. I am including a few images further below to give you an idea of where things usually end up in my paintings ... further, all the works below the Sycamore have been sold so no edits are possible. Thanks!

I love this thread.
anyone of the sycamore painting views is great. But we get to see the evolution as it becomes so much richer and more complex.

You so nice work. I don't think that the dripping paint adds anything worth while to your painting. Of all of your paintings, I like the figure painting the best. I just wish that she was placed a little to the right or left rather than in the center. I still like it. Thanks for showing your work.

You must be kidding when you say you don't admire Picasso and Cezanne.
Your palette, brushstrokes, tone and feel is in their zone man. You're pretty darn lucky but don't realize it!

It just occurred to me these are probably some of the best painters whose work you are actually familiar with and just don't know any better.
It's also occurred to me that you are not a painter yourself. Just a viewer who imagines they know something about painting because they are familiar with whatever sad collection at whatever said museum.
Anyway that's ok ... it's good to hear from viewers who don't know shxt, it's just way better received if they don't present themselves as experts in my field.

You sort of need to decide with the tree whether you want it as a formal object dividing up the canvas into shapes as it is in the day 4 or seeming to occupy space as it does more in day 3. Both are good. I'm not so keen on lens distortion transferred to paintings, as in the alleys but that's just me, we are all so used to seeing in that way now. The sitting girl is great lively paint surface but precise too.
