Keeping it Painterly

Part of my interest in creating this blog, is to make time to paint small works on a weekly basis.  I really enjoy painting them; 5x7, 6x6, 6x8.  It's a great way to keep things loose and simple, reminding me to stay fresh and painterly.  In my still life work, I have a tendency to get caught up in detail, which can give my paintings a tighter more realistic feel.  In "Four Mandarins" a 5x7 on canvas board, I kept it loose with a painterly feel.
