Back in the studio after a short trip to New York to attend a friends opening at a gallery in Chelsea. I go often, to see what other artists are doing or have done, as I find it really important to see what is being said. Once back to work, I purposefully forget about all of it, preferring to draw entirely from my own sensibilities, intuition and experience in creating a painting.
Pictured here are six panels in progress and set aside to dry. It often takes days before they are dry enough to work on them again and add more layers of oil paint. Some of these already have dozens of layers of paint, and seem to be nearing completion. We'll see.
I'm starting to incorporate some delicate horizontal lines into the paintings, along with the fabric and bands of color.
