I am adding new pieces to the series from which this painting comes. Each finished piece naturally becomes a point of departure for whatever comes next. Though many of the painting techniques I am using are the same, the materials never behave exactly the same way. The interactions of oil and acryllic paints, pencil, thread, and wire always yield surprises.
I am always excited to see what emerges next, and am challenged to know when to just leave something alone, to live with it for a while (sometimes a very long while) before moving forward.
