I was working at the shop today and noticed some free oil samples from Gamblin so I thought I'd try them out. I had brought some small canvases from home to mess around on so I pulled one out and thought about what I should paint. Sitting next to me was the New York Times and they had a picture of Andrew Wyeth standing in his father's studio that looked kind of funny so I decided to use that as my model. Here's the result.
My wife and I just had a wonderful weekend in Memphis and we stayed at the Talbot Heirs. I cannot recommend this place enough, great, great place. When we got back home, I painted this little picture in preparation for a larger painting. I can still smell the catfish in the air and hear the blues on the radio. View of Memphis from our patio.
