New: “Opal”

I often, but not always, do smaller pieces that I consider studies for a larger canvas. A recent example is the smaller piece entitled “Weathered”, a 12 x 12 canvas that I referred to while painting a larger version. Studies, to me, are piece to be referred to, not strictly adhered to. The end result is similar to the study, but shows signs of taking its own path through the process of making it. This piece, which is very true in some ways to the study, has a different feel. It’s a bit richer in color, and has a bit more energy. I had not set out to create an exact replica of the study, but use it as a starting point, then see where things go. “Opal” 48 x 48
