The lower painting has along way to go; the raw umber ground is still visible beneath the figure on the lower-left and other places. It’s 40″ x 56.” The upper painting is nearing completion. It’s called “Explain” or “Plain” or some such. The lower one is titled “Dinner in Trenton,” by the way.

In the Studio—10/28/12

The winds from a furious Nor’easter pound against the studio windows. Whitecaps crash against the shore one after the other with ceaseless regularity, their white froth nearlty reaching the studio door.
