Summertime

Here is a new painting I’m in the process of working on.  I’ve decided to focus on areas that I’m not strong in.  So, here is a figure I’ve started working on in oil.  Neither of these subjects I would say that I have mastered but I do hope to in the future.  At least master them to my liking!  Can anyone ever really Master painting? I find that its a constant teacher, always adding something new when you think you understand it.  So all we can do is keep enjoying the mysteries that surround the life and process of art.  Don’t get overwhelmed, just take it one day at a time!

Painted Skull

Acrylic, 30×48″

So finally after many different sketches the final skull emerged.  I was inspired by Georgia O’Keefe’s skull paintings, but chose to incorporate my own experimentation into the process.  The result was created by spraying water on the canvas after each application of paint.  Sometimes the canvas was so wet the paint would start sliding down the canvas in chunks.  This technique is definitely something I want to experiment with further.
