Whew! Sorry for the brief absence. Took care of lots of life things, business things, letting go, a commission piece, family visit, and necessary downtime to recharge.
Reminder: Just one more week left in my exhibit at Whole Foods in Golden. (Check Now Showing… tab for details)
I had been toying with this piece for a while. I love the composition, was enamored with the reflections on the floor. My difficulties lie in that I didn’t find the opportunity to work for extended periods of time on this while the paint was still gushy and wet because of commitments from TOJ (the other job) and life in general
Some painters like to add layers on layers of paint providing beautiful depth and richness. I prefer to work ‘alla prima’ which is painting all (or in my case “most”) of the work in one/a few sittings while the paint is still wet. (More on this in another post.) I love working this way, but have difficulty getting it done on larger sizes.
I believe the day will come soon when I can paint more by backing off of TOJ…….
