In Oil" Oil Series
During the two year period 1995 to 1997, I continued to enroll
in an adult oil painting class conducted by Alan Peters at The
Cleveland Institute of Art. My purpose was to raise the level
of my oil painting skills. However, a second purpose was to work
with a talented painter who would critique my progress weekly.
Alan proved to be an excellent foil and teacher.
The two paintings of Alan's Fence are separated by almost two
years. The white color treatment was done at the beginning of
this period while the yellow colored figure was painted near the
end of it. It is clear that my style changed during this time.
I like to believe it improved.
