Updates and revisions

I got up this morning after lying in bed contemplating how this piece was not finished. After dinner, I changed all that!

Now. those of you who don’t know what a blizzard “looks” like, have an idea.

I also worked on the two canvases that I have in progress. “Modigliani’s Mistress” is smiling now-sort of. I blocked out more of the ground, and added a second eye to the face, as well.

And, the work that changed the most…

These canvases start completely saturated with paint thinner, to enable the wash effects that I work with. This one got its’ third “bath” tonight, got flipped upside down from the last time I worked on it. I added the metallic gold, white, and deepened some of the purple. It important to note here also that the underlying texture is part of my prep process which includes creating that texture with acrylic paint and a palette knife.

I am hoping to have these canvases both finished this week-end, since there is a call for 100 Market Street that I would like to submit something to. If not, not a tragedy!

I did a lot of shoveling this morning, so an early night for me. Enjoy!
