Finished, and I am very happy with it. Using oils on the plaster yesterday, I was able to get subtleties in color that were not coming out with acrylics. I added a few touches a little earlier, and I am calling it.

So, I have been incredibly productive in this newly refound mix of mediums. Onto the next:

This is first phase. I am not sure if the plaster is snow or concrete yet-TBD. There are also a number of technical challenges in this piece that will need to be solved.

The two “Canyons”, one of which I showed last night, now have color. More to go on.

The newest plaster piece is waiting for the plaster to dry. It’s more “poetic” and “landscapey”. I was able to locate in my arsenal of frames, two wooden 11″ x 14″ ones that have Masonite backs. That is in one of those.
