oil painting on birch panel
10 inches square
and then there is the flipside of the last posted painting, i've had this completed for some time and before that it was a fully planned sketch the only slight change being the swan being white rather than black and still no title. i'm thinking "she..." might just be it. i'm in the midle of a bit of a change when it comes to the titles and not quite sure where it's leading me. i began naming the people in the paintings quite a number of years ago feeling that it gave the pieces another way for the viewer to connect to the piece and another way for it to seem more meaningful but lately i've been feeling it actually does the opposite. "she" and "he" feel more elegant and personal to me than a specific name and a specific name also does things to the time setting of the paintings that i'm not so sure of so for now "she..." it is.
i will keep naming the little portrait blocks no matter what though because that's just fun.
