Waking

12″x12″ oil on canvas

I’ve been weighing thicker and looser oil painting technique against thinner and more exacting.  The former seems to push my color intensity to match the density of the paint. Despite the thick paint, I’ve glazed in places, joining a technique I’ve used only with thin layers, with a near impasto. A wake-up for my senses, or at least a new passage and practice.

 

Painting Women Slide Show

A fabulous slide show of the Women Painting Women Fifth Anniversary exhibit at the Principle Gallery, South Carolina, USA.  The show runs from September 5-30th.    I won’t be able to make it to the opening, so it’s wonderful to have the opportunity to view the work of each especially terrific participating artist.  Principle Gallery has also published a gorgeous catalog.  Kudos to each and every artist and also to the gallery, who has been nothing but supportive of the Women Painting Women movement!
