Broken legs, and other travesties

One never expects a broken leg to be garnered at an opening reception. But, along with other “life” highlights, that’s where I have been. I also took a 2nd part-time job as a custom framer-haven’t done that in a few days either.
But, I have painted, and a lot! I am watching a real evolution in my style and palette. I have gotten very comfortable with a more AE application and I am not sure where some of this palette is coming from!

I am further exploring the whole elimination of the grid by totally reworking the last of the Art in Small Places pieces that had the 16-square grid. “Genuine” is one of those. “Predisposed” (below) is another.

“With Regards to the History” also accomplishes the dissemination of the grid.
