Here are a few more paintings I have been working on, all around 16 x 20. I am still using Golden Open acrylics, which I like a lot. The colors are pure and rich, and they really do stay “open” and workable for days.
And now I am here…
And so things are coming full circle. In this series I am working the paint layers, and cutting through in a very physical way. Another link back to the woodcuts I was making just before this trip to Iceland.
My approach to painting has changed so much in the past year. It all began at Gullkistan, where I arrived with the intention of shaking off old habits, old approaches to painting that no longer felt right. Now my printmaking is influencing my painting, and my painting and my approach to color is influencing my prints. It’s an old story, I know, the artist’s path of discovery. But for me it’s as fresh and exciting as this new day!
