I visited with Artist friend Jack VanNess this morning. When I asked him what he has been painting lately he answered..."colored wood blocks". Jack is a devotee of Henry Hensche. People who love Hensche do love those colored blocks...and there can be no denying that paintings done in the Hensche method are mondo-sun-drenched. The painting above is my solitary Hensche-esque attempt...(the concepts don't come easily). For Ed Terpening's great synopsis of a workshop with John Ebersberger, click HERE.
Practice painting: Celeste Bergin, Hensche exercise, oil on 8x8 gessoed wood panel
