Well – here is the End of Disaster. I’ve had a very interesting time with my Summer Experiments. The acrylic mediums I’ve been experimenting with are fascinating and have tremendous possibility. The painting itself is not, I think, one of my best, but I’m not embarrassed by it and feel I’ve resolved it – in other words – it isn’t squeaking at me anymore. And there is some nice symbolism in it. I wish I had about 8 more lives so I could explore explore more artistic avenues in greater depth. What I’ve found here is that I’m really missing the deep process of my still life oil paintings. And so I will resume my new series of those on Friday. The studio is now clean. Stay tuned for my thoughts and progress reports.
