DAILY ART FIX: New Painting “Overlook”

Art world links which caught my eye…

Richard Bledsoe “Overlook” acrylic on canvas 16″ x 12″

One of my recently completed paintings. I have been inspired to create a series of invented portraits, letting the painting process reveal characters to me. Once suggested, it becomes my role to realize the vision I was shown.

I no longer work from preparatory drawings or grids. I create the
images by painting them directly out on the canvases. While working
on the paintings, the most effective results happen when I’ve become
so absorbed in the process that I’m aware of nothing else. In fact, it’s
like I’m aware of nothing at all.

I don’t fundraise off of my blog. I don’t ask for Patreon or Paypal donations. If you’d like to support the Remodern mission, buy a book. Or a painting

My wife Michele Bledsoe has written her own inspirational book, Painting, Passion and the Art of Life.
