Just this year I have been enjoying “man beauty”. It is something different than “woman beauty”. It is rugged, hard working, disciplined and independent. I like to see folks in their element, unsuspecting of my scrutinizing gaze and of yours. I like to eaves drop on ordinary folks doing ordinary things, either at work or play. I think that is why I like the Impressionists so much. I added a speckled background to “read” outdoors. My first art instructor used to tell me to paint where it “reads” something, but do not be obvious about it. Engage the viewer. I hope I have.
