Daily Painting, Someone's Lunch

Hi there,

Welcome to daily painting at the Cooper studio. The paint du jour landed on one of my little 12 x 12 inch canvases. We are calling the painting, Someone's Lunch. As always lately, it's painted with acrylic paint.

I stretched a nice, big canvas this morning, and it's plan is another side walk cafe painting. The person from this little canvas will quite likely show up in the midst of all her patrons on the big canvas. Stay tuned. but for now, here's the image:

Someone's Lunch, acrylic painting on a gallery wrapped canvas, measuring a lovely 12 x 12 inches. You may find it, available at $125, in my portfolio. Enjoy.

Later, Cooper

Daily Painting And Why Do Artists Paint The Way They Do


Why DO artists paint they way they do? That would be a long list. Let's just mention one for today.

There's a show coming up midApril of my paintings. Yeah, about 20 of them, is what I'm shooting for. I have a friend who says "oh, boring" of exhibits titled "latest works of" and that every good exhibit needs to be focused on something. I'm thinking consumables. You know, food, drink, things that are tasty. In fact I'm thinking along the line of 'in pursuit of tasty'.

Today was a warmup day. Just a little canvas, 12 x 12 inches, and here it is:

'Taint it fun? It's available at my website if you'd like to bop over there :)

Now it's time to go paint with a really big brush, and a roller. Ha, we're talking the walls of the bathroom. Yup, there's always something that needs painted, one way or the other!
