Daffodils Checkered (past)

Daffodils - Checkered Tablecloth (first stage)
I have been painting this for almost two months- knocking everything out, re-painting.

We'll see what happens... I am more and more intrigued by dense closeness rather than large planes of flattened color.

Bump It Girl #7 (just do it)

Since the first week of the new year I have had an on again/off again relationship with this painting Trying to resolve and ignore problematic areas has kept me from working on other paintings, but it seems to finally be coming together.  Now Bump It Girl #7 (just do it) 42" x 42" oil on canvas is a little closer to what I had envisioned all along. Before the last two sessions, the piece had undergone a number of transitions and revisions (see below).

Bump It Girl #7 (just do it) 42" x 42" oil on canvas  - Here is the painting after the first day.
Afterward, the figure went through a series of transitions.  From this thinner
This fuller figure which began to form the structure for the next state. When I decided to paint out almost everything and start over. 

So I wiped almost everything out and started again.
