So far this year, I’ve been working on some small studies for larger works.  I may post the studies when the larger works are done, but that could be awhile.

In the meantime, here is a small watercolor pencil painting on paper from a couple of days ago.  I started from the point of continuing my thoughts/impressions of Bontecou, but decided to aim for a simpler design and a slightly subdued (for me) palette.   I love how this piece turned out!

  • Thank you for sharing this great story! I think its interesting how unfinished art to the artist, is finished art once anyone else see’s it. And it would undermine you as the artist to go back and change it if they already thought it was finished. Sometimes this is why i don’t like to let people see unfinished work until I can show the completed piece.
