A Moment of Clarity

I often work well into the morning, quietly mixing wax and oil and applying it to large canvases. on Wednesday I was struggling with a 30x30 canvas that I had started painting on about three months ago. I had mixed up a too large amount of white. Looking at what I had started and realized it would never work, I started laying on the white wax and oil and the image became evident almost immediately. Who was it that said he just carved away anything that wasn't the object he was carving?
That is kind of what happened here.

New Print with New Blankets!!!

Today I got my new press blankets and put them on my press. The top blanket is the "pusher" and the thin blanket on the bottom is the "catcher" I have no idea what the middle one is called.
After running the blankets through the press 20 times and increasing pressure each time I was able to print this little gem.
I saw this image on Facebook from a friend, Kenny Helphand and used it to create this image.

revisiting "Women in Stone"

I decided to paint on the big photos used for my show a few years ago. Pretty happy with the results.
