This is the first one. At this point there is no title of the painting, but you will see as I paint the title of the work will change.
3/4/18-UPDATE on the stump painting: Still nothing. It is sitting in my studio staring at me. So times it take months. I have had paintings take years to finish.
At this point I seem to have come to a stand still on this painting. Not really sure why, I just can't seem to get a good look on what is going on and where it is going. Time away from it is a good thing.

At this point I am around 70% complete. I will be saturating the colors but I am still discovering the image.

A working title : Kitty and the Swan

Sometimes I find turning a painting on it's side and paint helps to find out the path of the painting.
Who knows maybe this image wants to be horizontal...

Still no real title. I thought about 'Leaving myself in Maui' but I am not really sold on that title yet. The image is getting a little too heavy for that.

As you can tell I have sanded out a lot of the painting. Sanding is a big part of my process. It gives me random textural opportunities that I could never make if I had to think them all out.

Here I put a white wash over a lot of the color.
