Coming Of Age In The Year 2018, © 2019, work in progress (click on image for larger view)
This is a blog about painting: specifically, representational fine art, generally, using oil paint. I think a lot about what I'm doing, and those thoughts about subject matter, technique, influences, frustrations and delights all show up here. It's all about the journey.

This painting really begs to be worked on, but the indigo that I used in the center is still wet. I need to give it a whole week of drying time, I think, especially since I just added a lot of small wavy lines all over the place. But I feel like I have a handle on it now; there needs to be a strong dark outer wave line to keep things from getting too chaotic; darker paint in the corners; and neat (not hairy) edges to the strokes.
