Observations and thoughts about the fine art of painting

From The Lobenberg Vault
This was an assignment I gave to my oil and acrylic painting students at Sacramento City College a few years ago. This is a good example of NOT painting every damn thing that you are looking at. Hey, none of us really look too closely at much. All you need are a few visual cues (or paint marks) and what you put down on the canvas is still going to come across as say a cup of Starbuck's coffee or a pack of Nutra-Sweet. Get lazy people! Spend less time painting and more time napping in the warm sun.
