Horizon Lines (Twenty Three),2009, Oil on Birch Panel, 6x12
I have been really busy with family related stuff the last few days. School meetings, doctor's appointments etc, and I am really itching to get to work today. But I wanted to post something here, as well as clean up my studio at least a little bit. All of a sudden there is stuff everywhere. I know it's bad when things start randomly falling off my desk:
My drawing table is really a mess, it seems to be the current holding area for everything that I don't know what I should do with:
With the exception of some final touches on a few smaller pieces, I have three paintings left to do for the show. Two are ready for the color glazes and the really large panel (40x60)is prepped finally and ready to go.
I plan to do the underpainting on that either this afternoon or tomorrow morning. I nearly always paint such large panels in a vertical format but this time I am going to work in a horizontal format, and I think that will be a big challenge for me. Especially because I am not quite sure yet what the image will be. Heh.
First up today however. Color on this piece:
