"Just a Whisper" - Oil - 11" x 14
"Those familiar with the work of well-known artist C. W. Mundy will recognize his influence on this piece. This is the first painting I did after watching a demonstration by him. As is typical of his work, thick paint, scattered color, and interrupted edges are present. If you have followed my recent work, you will see these elements used to varying degrees. " --- SFG
Titled "Just a Whisper", the daring experimental painting is 11" x 14" and is oil on canvas on Raymar canvas panel.
Experimenting with new techniques is important to growth, but jumping from style to style results in confusion and prevents the development of one's subconscious reactions. The subconscious tells the artist whether something is right or not and frees him for self-expression. Only intensive work within a familiar framework develops that ability. I have painted many years within that framework to develop and perfect that judgement.
