pool side

OK, so maybe it is not the time of year to be thinking of swimming. These two paintings from last summer are an examples of the what a difference in point of view or point of interest can make. Focusing in on just the ball as apposed to – for lack of a better term – the big picture, makes a major difference in the out come of the painting. I often try to show as much as i can in a painting liking the relationship of all the objects. When I limit the subject I am often surprised at how much can be shown. These two paintings show views of the same place, but viewed differently.
both: 8" x 8" oil on board
