A super productive morning in the studio! I finished up some paintings that have been lingering. (All three from my last post are completed.) It was great to be able to work with the door wide open, I am so ready for Spring weather. It was one of those mornings where everything seemed to work the way I wanted and all my surprises were good ones. What more can you ask for?
I did try this week to work a bit in acrylic. I just can't seem to love it. Oil paint works so much better for me, the flexibility and drying time are perfect. I used to use a drier for my oils. Now a days when my studio time is squeezed in around nap time and bed time, and anytime I can get some help, I find that coming back to still wet paint is a life saver.
I am anxious to get back to some encaustic work soon too. That's next up! Although I may need to replenish some supplies before that happens.
"Chandelier" 30x40" oil on canvas
"Hot House" 24x36" oil on canvas
"Neighborhood" 36x48" oil on canvas
"New Years" 16x20" oil & conte on canvas
"Ohio" 30x40" oil on canvas
This last one was a little outside the box for me. It seems more representational. It has lingered the longest in my studio. For the a while it didn't quite seem like me. But I am happy with the outcome. I am curious to see if it's a new direction or a tangent.
Have a great weekend!
