You Cannot Out-Paint the Paint

When you do realism you have to decide what degree of realism you are going to attempt… I am not trying to duplicate something that I see in nature because you must always compromise—it is always going to be paint, you cannot out-paint the paint.

Neil Jenney
Swimmer and Reflection, 1970

I love this painting. And I love paint. You should specialize in portraits!

As much as I'd like to take credit for this painting, it's not mine...

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. love.
