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.

The above painting is the result: I’m still struggling to get a good shot of the whole painting, alas.

You can see the individual paintings on my website here: Succession Series — click on any thumbnail for the full view of each piece.

I think very often that it takes ten over worked efforts to produce one really beautiful wrist motion that is synchronized with your head and heart, and you have it, and therefore it looks as if it were born in a minute.
