Hugo Reid Adobe

In most of the world, and even the rest of the country, you can find seriously old buildings. In California, 150 years qualifies as extremely old.

This is another 12x16. I missed breakfast, and got faint with heat and/or hunger before I was finished with this. I'm not sure it was worth it. But anyhow, I've used up all my blank canvases (except one that smells like mildew.) I think I'll get smaller ones. I think I learn as much on 8x10, and I think my chances of catching and condensing a moment of beauty are every bit as good. At least for now. Until I have bigger brushes, and work faster, and find a subject that screams to be a monumental painting.


  1. I don't know, Barbara. I like this one. The composition is interesting. Maybe a sketch in preparation for another look?

    I forget to eat somethings and then wonder why I feel so odd. Realize its the beyond hungry shakes and headache. Too much of that and I can count on a migraine.

  2. I like this one, too. Light was captured effectively.

    It might be less than complete, but what's there is very good.
