After a long argument with myself about what I like to do creatively right now, I have reached something of a solution. Working small, helps me to refine techniques, colors and designs. It also gives me satisfaction on a more regular basis, and personally, I love the small sizes right now to communicate my current vision.
My work always begins with pieces, of scenes, of paper, of anything, and I end up putting them together to form my paintings. So, why not use that philosophy to create a body of work? I thought it was a great idea and it’s working out so far. Here are two paintings from this week. Both are encaustic and watercolor paintings on panel.
