Pastel and Oil Paintings by Robert Lafond
Good, ignore them.Your work is alive with intelligent color. Furthermore, it does much more than comfort, it opens up an understanding of your environment. I`ve never been to where you live yet I feel like I know that landscape in a profound way. Should I ever walk along that canal, I`m sure it would seem deeply familiar.The top landscape in 'Two Cornfields and a Mountain Lion' is a masterpiece, both bleak and hopeful.
Randall, Thank you. You sure know how to make one feel good about making art.
I'm loving these muddy tracks with their bright bits of reflection looking like gems emerging from the earth.
Sam, Thanks. I can't think of anything smart to say.
That's okay... you paint smart.
Found this post after a Google search "how to paint a muddy field". I had a commission rejected today because the background was "too nice" - and her dog (portrayed against the background) wasn't muddy enough. Looking closely at your brushstrokes and use of colour i have tonight painted my first muddy field. I hope the painting will be accpted on resubmission. It is not as good as your muddy fields, but it is definitely muddy so thank you ever so much and i am very pleased to have found your blog. Your work is very inspiring.
