Ten new paintings

I’ve been working on a complicated 20-panel oil painting for most of the year, which is getting close to completion (for an October show in Ft. Worth). On Friday, July 18th, I had the need to loosen up, so turned back to encaustics, which are just naturally a looser kind of medium.

Here are the rest of the 10 new pieces, in top to bottom reverse order of completion:

A grave mistake is to paint only for the end results and not for the joy of painting!
