in the spirit of incomplete work.... I started this about 5 years ago. And it has looked like this for that long. I kinda like it in its incomplete state.
However.... I intend to let this one evolve into whatever the final image will be. I'm thinking there will be several more faces before this is done.
to be continued....
This painting is NOT done. ick.
I first painted this about 10 years ago... I never liked it. It was flesh tones with dark greens and blacks... just gross. Last week I intended to GESSO over it. Then decided that maybe it was worth re-visiting.
Departure has been part of the last several months.... departing souls, like this is depicting... but also departing jobs, governments, etc.
Departure creates change. New jobs, new president.... but departed souls can't be replaced. Still... maybe its not all bad.
Here's the new tat. Thanks to a friend's husband... it was affordable even in my laid-off employment state. I've started a new job this week. Still work for the same college within Cornell University as before... but now I'm with the Communications team as a Web Assistant. Working Tuesdays through Fridays.
Life is good.
