Finishing Summer portraits & planning Fall projects

These 18″ imagined portraits have been a lot of fun. Slowly getting them on a few online galleries. All painted on the rough textured side of a Masonite panel. A few different approaches and techniques – the upper right has pieces of painted canvas applied to the surface of the panel. All have been an attempt to add brevity and spontaneity to my painting process.

For Fall, I’d like to go larger and non-figurative. Hiking season is drawing to a close, and I’ll have more time on the weekends in the studio. My previous abstract paintings have kept the object in place with central light source and point of action. In the coming paintings I’d like to explore ideas of open field, dispersed focal point and overall calm. We’ll see. 🙂
