Small Ones

Particularly in the gestational phase of a new body of work, I've had some success with smaller works on paper. So the thought, why not work really small?  The paintings in the photo range in size, but 5x5 inches and 4x6 inches are the two most common sizes right now.  Compared to my earlier work, they are absolutely miniatures.  (I even had to buy new brushes.)

I may talk more about the process later, but suffice to say they have actually taken too much time as I jump from one to another as a solution strikes me. While some of them seem to be following familiar narrative paths, I view each one as a story into itself, and they are not meant to be view sequentially.   I've finished a few and will post some samples shortly,
