Haven’t posted an update on the blog in a few days. It’s not that I’ve been idle – quite the contrary I have been painting more days than not. I didn’t paint on Saturday however, but that was only because I was up at the Denver Art Museum with Julie to see the excellent Daniel Sprick exhibition.
I’ve also been hard at work on another new painting that I’m not quite ready to share online yet. But yesterday I returned to the Shushing portrait of Josh. I had to wait a while to work on this one again, not only because of other projects, but because the cadmium paints in the background take a really long time to set. It took a full week to be dry to the touch.
I’m still having trouble getting decent photographs of these works in progress so, sorry for the glare.
