Only the Lonely

After a hiatus from painting that lasted several months, I returned to it, completing three new paintings in the last couple months before the new year.  The art of painting is a mental and intellectual process, and sometimes a break from the action clears the head.

This one references the great John Steinbeck and the great Roy Orbison. 40" x 45", oil, acrylic, ink, canvas, 2015.
