Noir et Blanc in 6, Mixed Media, 6×6
I haven’t forgotten you. I’ve been painting daily. In fact, I am adding a new process to my repertoire… I’ve been painting with oil and cold wax (don’t confuse it with encaustic, it’s not the same). I start on canvas or panel with an acrylic layer to which I add an oil layer followed with cold wax. I then repeat with more layers of oil and the wax. For Noir et Blanc in 6, I added charcoal powder and graphite powder.
Summertime is a busy time. In addition to busyness in the studio, preparing for contests and shows, I’ve had some chores outside and taken a couple of trips back to the Midwest to see two of my kids and their families, as well as my nephew and his extended family. We enjoyed having my daughter and her husband visit Father’s day week-end. Don’t forget that I’m a tennis fan and have watched the French Open and Wimbledon on the Tennis Channel. To top all that off, I’ve been dealing with recurring aches and pains.
BREAKING NEWS: In the near future, I will be videotaping myself painting. I’m excited and hope you look forward to these visual Studio Scoops. Stay tuned!
