Lorenzo, The colors and detail in these works are outstanding. What kind of paint and painting surface are you useing. And what are the sizes of these works?
Perfection is what drives an artist.
The inability to achieve perfection is what creates a work of art.

John, I use Grumbacher Academy oils on Masonite board. The colors retain their vividness where I want it to remain such and the board gives me a good hard crisp edge, which helps in constrast work, backgrounds and especially in detail. I've worked on canvas for many years but I always had misginings about it until I scanned through a book on Don Crowley's work and saw a picture of him painting on board, I always wondered what it meant when it read "Oil on Board" and now I know. I will never go back to canvas it's much more satisfactory because I can buy it by bulk at Home Depot and have them cut it to my specifications. I follow that with gessoing and then sanding it to my liking.

yes i do but rarely. I will be particiopating in the 34th annual Western Art Show & Sale this Memorial Day weekend in Prescott, Arizona with many of the masters of Western Art, like Ted Blaylock, Donald Crowley, John Coleman, Fred Fellows, to name a few. I am presently having some works on display at the Frame Deco in Oro Valley near Tucson Az but I mostly try to market and show my work through my website;www.lorenzocassa.com

Lorenzo

Have been looking at this painting some more and am somehow enchanted with it, aside the fact it is a fine painting.

My thoughts are that although she is lovingly preparing the corn, her thoughts are far away. Perhaps on her spiritualism, family and ancestors.

all the best... Bruce

You have a gift!
The mere attempt to examine my own confusion would consume volumes.

glomski777,
Thank you, Thats all i heard this weekend at the 34th Annual Phippen Museum's Western Art Show & Sale in Prescott, AZ. Some of the big name artists were there and i was very nervous to show my work, but I got rebuked for saying it to the wrong person, they had to straighten me out that I was as equal or more talented than them, so it was quite an eye opener for me thus changing my way of thinking forever.

Bruce,
Sorry for not responding to you sooner, I was out of town. I would like to tell you the rest of the story about this painting and why she is in this pose, but I think i will leave every one wondering ever after!

Lorenzo.. pleased to hear of your success at the Prescott show. Well done.

But, may I be so bold as to say that sometimes too much flattery, too soon, can be a drive and intensity killer. But of course I'm quite sure you are wise enough and mature enough to know that. Maintain your perspective and continue doing what you are doing... you are on the right path!

all the best... Bruce

Bruce,
Thanks I need that. I know where youre coming from as I have been on that road before, many moons ago. After a time I was just a self proclamed drunk artist with no works to show for, All talk and no walk.
