Every Painting Takes on a Life of its Own

This one started out as an attempt to reproduce at larger scale a small acrylic from last summer…and it wasn’t working. I began to rework it in oil at the beginning of this year, and maybe it’s done now…not sure. I need to live with it for a bit, and see what else, if anything, needs to happen.

Top painting, then L-R (you can scroll through the whole series by clicking on any picture in the series):

  • Current incarnation
  • yesterday
  • earlier this year
  • small painting it was modeled on (quite a change, huh?)

An artist is either a plagiarist or a revolutionary.
