Progress on New Paintings

March 22, 2010

Here are a couple of progress pictures after today’s studio session. Some of these are cloudy because the clear gel is still wet. Cloudy means happy. It means I am happy with them and am embedding them in clear gel for posterity.

I had to make two pictures, because they have to lie flat and I couldn’t get them all into one shot.

At this point, I have four that I consider to be completed, four that are almost there but not dry enough to apply the gel, and the final four are still waiting for me to resolve them. One (the white one) is way behind. It has only gesso and texture so far.

The one on the bottom left has some collage elements. It will be interesting to see how this one works out.

    These look so yummy- there’s no other way I can put it! I look forward to what comes next with these panels.

      Well, Stephanie . . . some are great and some are not so great at this point. I may end up sending half to the gallery and struggling onward with the rest. I think that would be the smart thing to do. Stay tuned!

    Hi Martha: So happy I found your blog — I’m still not sure how, but I did! I love your work, and am liking your posts where you show your work in progress.

    I’m a photographer, going down the photo montage path, and using lots of photos of texture. Have been toying with the idea of creating my own texture, but now the right time now to go down that path.

    Meanwhile, I’m enjoying your work and blog!

I love getting your comments, so please don't be shy! Your feedback is valued.
