Working the River, Chewelah


This painting began as a life-size portrait I was trying to make work on a canvas that was not proportioned correctly. It needed to be skinnier. 


Never one to be deterred, I kept trying to force the painting. The positive side is the first layer of paint was on the canvas.

Sometimes, the better part of valor and painting is to give in to the way things are not working and do something different. I turned the canvas upside down and went with a manufacturing plant at Chewelah, Washington. Acrylic. 6'x4'
