Succession Series Complete!

I finally finished my 7-month Succession Series project of 20 interrelated paintings, painted individually, but with connecting edges and related ideas. I painted these in oil, after spending the past 2 years painting primarily in encaustic. It felt like coming home to paint in oil again, yet I approached this work with a different sensibility, different palette than I normally use, and slighter different techniques.

10 New Encaustic Paintings in About a Week

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:

I must not paint the thing itself, but I will paint the air between myself and the thing, and beyond.
