New painting in Progress
Started a new piece on Feb 2, 2010. It's loosely based on the deck I painted for the AllnNations Skate Jam auction (see entry below). It's oil on canvas birch board 15"x48". It's being painted in a modified form of the Mischetechnik which I learned last year studying under Robert Venosa and Martina Hoffmann. It is a slow process but the painting absolutely glows after using so many transparent glaze layers.
Since the beginning of the new year I've been trying to paint at least 2-4 hours a day. Call it my daily meditation. I enter the "zone" while painting and totally lose track of time. It's a wonderful feeling, addictive even. I'm hoping to have this painting ready for the Anchor Gallery opening in April. I'll post more pics as I progress through the piece.
