Little Water

A couple small water studies, each 8″x10″. I always seem to come back to these meditative pieces.

I have been experimenting with some gel medium in the paint for a little thicker texture. It definitely changes the behavior of the paint in interesting ways. If the ratio of paint to medium is too high the dry color becomes a bit unpredictable, which isn’t a great thing!

I have a soft spot in my heart for this particular painting. It encapsulates a lot of the elements I strive for in my work. I liked this painting so much that I was abnormally fearful of dropping it or damaging it in some unknown way! Kind of funny considering I destroy work all of the time, it is part of the process of creation for me. As a result I am less sentimental about work… but apparently not always!
