Small Driveway

1998, oil on canvas, 24x32in. Private collection, Cleveland, Ohio.

This was not really a study, or something done in preparation for the larger version, but instead it was something I executed quickly while the larger work was in progress. Even though it's also from memory, it has a more naturalistic, offhand feel than the big painting, so I think it was just a matter of following an urge I didn't follow in the other version.

Hi Patrick -
I was checking out the blog today of an artist friend in Cleveland and something made me think of your web site. This hangs prominently in our house and is something we never tire of seeing. Love your other stuff posted recently, especially "Coffee." Some day I'll get that private office I've always wanted and I'll have to talk to you about expanding our Jewell collection. Hope you are well.
