See how it goes…

New painting in progress– I thought I’d photograph it at the end of each session because I’m always fascinated with the layers and evolution of a painting. This is an oil on linen and is 50×60″ which is a very large piece for me. In the beginning of a painting, I usually have no idea where it’s going; no plans, nothing. I just get out the paint and see what happens. When I talk to people about a finished piece I usually tell a story of all the phases it’s gone through…”You should have seen the painting underneath this one– it was so frustrating and I couldn’t figure out where to go next so I just covered it with a new painting!”

Well, I’ll try to document all phases of this one. The good, the bad, and the ugly. I can already see myself painting over this.
