It seems like I'm always painting lately. Instead of completing one painting at a time, I'm working on several at a time. The translucent process is one that I'm totally immersed in at present. I'm seeing glimmers of progress and am convinced that this is the road I want to take with my work.
I've had several disappointing paintings that will probably end up in the bon fire as a sacrifice to the art gods. But I've also had some paintings that show promise. Who knows why we artists choose to take a different route after painting in a similar manner for years. It seems that throughout history artists go through different periods of creating. With me, it's as if there has been an irresistible pull in this direction.
I'll be showing this painting again when it's been glazed and scumbled with several layers of paint.
