Moving ahead on my new series is such wonderful fun, full of surprises and happy accidents. I have discovered a substrate that is the most marvelous painting surface. Of course, it requires a bit of effort to prepare, as discussed in my previous posts, but I think it is worth the work! Here are images of my progression from one element to a near complete painting. The final layer is applied with oils which is absolute heaven. The effect is a layering of crystalline colors that glow from the underpainting. Images are of my progression to an almost finished piece. Let me know what you think! With luck and the muse, I will show this series at the upcoming WEST Studio Tour at Austin ArtSpace Gallery. I will post the finished paintings on my website as they come into completion.
Meanwhile, happy painting to all! Cheer's to the process, and all that we as artists learn along the way!
