Casting Shadows, 36 x 24, oil on canvas
This is a piece that was started last year, but it wasn't until now that I knew how to finish it in the studio and pull it all together in a cohesive way. It was one of those - destroy to bring back - paintings. I glazed it all down, painted back into the light, softened edges with the glaze and built up the paint in the lighter areas. I like it much better now, it still has the feel of a contemporary design, but seems more substantial. For now!
