The walls...

...are full of works in progress!
Like these:



Feels like I'm finally getting used to working without the *toxic* alkyd medium! The new glazes take a bit longer to dry, but starting with a more complete underpainting helps to balance the slow drying time.


And then there are some very small things, like these:

this one's about 9x12"
I'm thinking it's finished now.

Side view - there's always something around the corner!


And a few new starts. These are all 8x10:

thick paint

thin paint

more thin paint

Got some ideas, wanna try small versions first. Here we go....!

A walltropolis. You know i've wondered what ryou did with the edge of their canvas...did you tack wood slats on the side and make a frame. What did you do? and now I know...you just continue painting. SWEET!
