I've been working on just a few paintings in the last couple of months. I haven't had much time, but each chance has been so special. It's funny how anyone painting can go through the same progression that occurred in the last 200 years in art. It is nothing new, but it is a new freedom for me.
The other big change for me in the last couple of years is a much greater interest in German art, particularly German Expressionism. Mostly in the past I've been shaped by French (late 19th century) art. Beckman is my favorite in this regard. It was really a surprise to see the St Louis museum has such a strong collection of his works. I was just in Frankfurt a couple of weeks ago, and got to see more paintings - and some of the sites he painted (like the train station).
I expect to follow up with more posts about art, and software development, in the future.
