As 2014 comes to a close, I take the time once again to survey my work. I am a little disappointed that I was not as prolific as prior years, but I am happy with the quality of my work. This year has been a turning point in quality improvement, not only in my work but also in my framing. My paintings are richer in texture, looser due to confidence, and freer in spirit. Next year I will push to continue on this quest, but for one last time I will look back on the year and set forth my ten favorites.
