Fred Shed

I am so proud of this painting. It was started very late in the afternoon during the OPA paint out, really too late for a sane person to start a painting and expect to catch anything worthwhile. For that reason, I grabbed a tiny panel and a large brush, thinking about how prominently math figures into art.
I had begun to paint it a certain way while the sun was a little higher, and then deviated from the sage teaching, "Never chase the light!" because the shadows that were stretching out before me were just too irresistible.
I was the very, very last painter to finish that day, so I guess that makes me the winner!
