I started painting again in early January and now have about 16 pieces in progress. I’ve decided to begin each piece with latex, something I had started doing with my last series, and then work oil on top of it. I love the contrast between the flatness of the latex and the depth of oil, and of course it’s just fun to be throwing paint around from a big bucket.
To warm up some other painting muscles, I am also reworking this old piece that never quite fit in, and never felt resolved. The composition is a bit of a bear, but I feel like it’s headed in the right direction.
