So, I think she’s all finished. I am pretty happy with how this turned out. I wish my photographing skills were as deft as my painting ones, but I guess that’s why I have genius friends like Sara Stathas to shoot my work. I’m taking the lot of these paintings down to her pad in NYC in a couple of weeks to get proper slides taken. I still say “slides,” because “digital image files” doesn’t sound as street-tough.
I’ve started a new painting that I’ll post tomorrow. After writing how I began this Gary painting this week, I took a slightly different approach to this newest one. I structured it in a more traditional way. It’s taken a lot of restraint to not over-paint the thing, but I did so as a matter of conducting a comparative analysis. It’s science, you see.
