"Rembrandt and Shakespeare, Bohr and Gauguin, possessed powerful hearts, not powerful wills. They loved the range of materials they used. The work's possibilities excited them; the field's complexities fired their imaginations. The caring suggested the tasks; the tasks suggested the schedules. They learned their fields and then loved them. They worked, respectfully, out of their love and knowledge, and they produced complex bodies of work that endure."

-Annie Dillard, "Write Till You Drop"

These are a couple of paintings I did this week.  Work has been pretty busy lately, so spending some time after work painting by the water has been really nice.   I actually did a couple more of this  bridge and overpass, but they didn't quite come out.  These are both 8x10 oil on panel.
