SWEET / by Philip Tarlow

1:07 PM: this morning i started a new late summer series painting: sweet, 36x36" in it's present state (i'm stopping early so we can take our trail walk) it has 4 or 5 distinct elements & colors. it's a creek riff, as are the rest of the paintings in this series, and owes as much to thelonious monk as gorky.  as long as weather permits, i'll continue my plein air excursions to the creek, which renew my feelings for the essential elements and mood in these paintings.
