New Painting: “Comin’ Through!”

For today’s FirstFridayArtWalk over on Google+, here is the first oil painting I’ve completed this year that I’m happy with.  🙂

It’s also my first attempt to interpret my recent watercolor mini-painting series into an oil painting, and I’ve pushed myself in several other ways with this one, too.  Perhaps a bit too much pushing for one painting, but I do like it and I’m ready to try another, having learned a few things though this work.

Forgive the slight sheen on this one.  I will need to try and take a better photo later.

Put yourself in the position of an up-and-coming artist living in early-sixteenth-century Italy. Now imagine trying to distinguish yourself from the other artists living in your town: Michelangelo, Raphael, Leonardo, or Titian. Is it any wonder that the Italian High Renaissance lasted only 30 years?
