Liberty Is Golden

This painting for whatever reason seemed to take forever. It must be the nice weather and all the golf. It never fails, every summer production seems to go down, but quality should not. Ken Davies gave me good advice years ago, "better to do three really good paintings than five mediocre ones". The advice seems pretty easy and straight forward, but can at times be difficult to live up too. But years later I still find this simple advice one of the most important lessons I recieved in art school.

Money Has Wings

 I feel as if money really does have wings. And after looking at the eagles pictured on some currency it all makes sense, money is suppose to fly off not to be seen again. I am presently doing a larger painting based on this concept which will involve much more currency. I think most people find it easy to relate to this theme.
