Two new works to be added to the Eros section, password Pompeii.
New commission-for dove -variations in placement and for rooster reworked face and legs to express the right attitude. Also ended up having to attach more hardboard to give more space to the image. The client wants a finished, realist painting instead of gestural so there’s more amending to do.
A group of paper studies that may or may not be combined (August 2016) for a larger oil on canvas piece. Him: two expressionist portrayals of masculinity, a few plein-airy documentations of my friend’s houseboat on Lake Union and two immediate outdoor watercolors of skies at midday and sunset (I always have to work fast at dusk).
