Don Haggerty    Oil Sketches


My oil sketches are nothing more than oil paintings whose point of finish happened to arrive very early in the art-making process.

As you probably know, I have a special love for brushwork.  And whenever I find myself gazing at a sketch and find my eyes wandering happily through the piece, retracing and reliving the marks that have somehow found their way onto my canvas, I put my brush aside.  Inside I smile.

I'm never quite sure whether it's me who says "finished", or whether the painting is the one who says it to me, but inevitably we agree.  It's something that, when it happens, you just know.
