This new style thing finally starting to come together

Or, the maddening process of deconstruction and reconstruction.

Here's the first result that I'm maybe a bit happy with:




Deconstructing how you imagine and compose your images and reassembling the into a new way of working is a frustratingly slow process. Actually it's not just reassembling, because it involves trying to incorporate a whole lot of new techniques and ideas, so it's a really messy maddening process. Mainly because you know you have to do it to expand your art, but you're not making any money while you're doing it, and you really don't know if you're going to end up with anything sellable at the end either. Ack.

Here are a couple of detail photos. (All taken with my phone, so photo quality might not be great)

Blast from the past

I recently went rummaging through the basement looking for mini-paintings for a friend, the kind I used to sell at outdoor art shows, and here's what I found. They're all between 4" x 5" and 7" x 9"



Really interesting to see how much progress I've made as a painter, what kinds of things I no longer do and what kinds of things are still showing up in my paintings.  

cheers,
Marcel
