I have completed my latest work with layers and layers of glazes to accentuate the concept of a journey guided by a gentle hand and a soft breath. I was able to achieve the luminosity i was looking for. the challenge now is going to be breaking these canvases down and reattaching them to a masonite surface to complete the presentation.

I've begun two new pieces. This one more complicated in design than i imagined but now transferred to nine 10 x 10 canvases held together in order to paint them all together in what i understand is called a "polyptych". Eventually i will take them apart and mount them on a piece of masonite a little larger than the overall 30 x 30. Choosing a palette was not a problem since i had the idea in my head already. I am finding though that what is in my head does not always translate visually to the canvas so we will see how close i come.
At the same time i have begun a diptych taken from a smaller version of Divine Roots. this one i'm having a harder time with for some reason and wonder sometimes why i torture myself! some days it seems i don't have a clue what i'm doing so i leave it for a while and when i come back to it i manage to work it out. again we'll see.
Happy Valentine's Day all! :)
