A crimson surrender…

Oh! The glare of it all! I always have to stand back and take a picture somewhere mid-painting. Somehow it helps to distance myself from the work to see where I should be going! I suppose the glare from my lousy photography helps along those lines…

All the parts…

I like to look at paintings up close….so, I thought, dear viewers, you might like to see what my camera work leaves out – – I added several detail photos here.  As you can see, a close up view reveals (that what might appear to be an over-aggressive brush when you view this piece as a whole)  0’s and 1’s  are dissolving from view…or that’s what it’s supposed to be anyway.  There are those that hypothesize  we do not live in a base reality, that the universe is merely a hologram – a projection of reality.  Well,

hummm.

And, you thought I’d finally given up painting?  Well, it has been a while since I’ve done anything worth sharing.   This is what is on the easel at the moment, a nice piece featuring a glass of spilled wine – – spillage without breaking the glass!  It’s a miracle!  A glass saved…although, saved or not, I can’t help but wonder if that bow had anything to do with it.  It’s a work in progress – needing much more paint!  Oil on cheap canvas,

Oh, just stop it!

The Christmas Card Project, 2017, has come to an end.  These are the final three greetings that will be sent out!  Whew!  On to new stuff…or old stuff on new canvas….we’ll see.

Remember when I didn’t finish this?

I sat this piece aside for a few days, added the reflections of those eyes in the shiny black tile floor and then never photographed it!  Ha!

I just dove into my next piece and didn’t go back – – – until today.  Adaptation, it’s such a lovely piece once you get used to the idea of it!
