More Than One Way

Reflecting on a good, productive week. I have quite a few paintings in progress right now, I think there might be 5, all different sizes, some on paper, a couple on canvas. I also finished "More Than One Way" and I love the energy of this one. I took a few photos along the way to give you an idea of my process. While I'm painting I'm not really thinking about what I want it to look like in the end, I just keep adding paint, marks and shapes until it suddenly speaks to me. I also turn the painting constantly while I'm painting, re-orienting so I have a different perspective frequently. At some point I finally see "the way" it should stay, and then I add a final layer or two of color and marks, highlighting, pulling forward, pushing back until it's done.
