At the start of the new year here, while I'm getting sorted out in my head exactly what I want to get up and running on, I thought I would paint a few landscapes to keep my hand active. So, here are two starts, very early on – about the 2nd pass. They're on the studio floor here because I just laid on some heavy glaze in a few areas. I'll be sure to post them again, at least when they're finished. I often do some landscapes after a larger body of work (in this case, having recently wrapped up solo exhibitions in LA and Berlin) and need a break from the taxing efforts of working with the figure.
