oil interior 5 / by Philip Tarlow

2:15 PM: i'm done for the day, and the painting may be resolved, depending on how it looks when i take it to the house & we both peruse. 








noon: i've had a good morning so far, making critical tweaks to oil interior 5 that are pushing it to the edge of singing.

the addition of horizontal white stripes and accompanying offsetting of the cup, the arm, the shaving brush are all contributing to this painting gaining a sense of it's identity

i'm going to get back to work. the skies are darkening early today, and a monsoonal storm may put an end to my painting day....

we went for a 5am trail walk, hoping not to get soaked, but we did, glad we went, though.
