Untitled within the Ice Painting Series – 24″ x 24″ – Oil, Oil Bar and Wax on Panel
The Ice Painting Series is a long-running, multi-layered series. I posted another piece, ‘Frozen Time’, from the series earlier this month. Currently, I’m working on larger pieces with oil wash and oil bar drawing at the base, semi-transparent and opaque layers in the mid-layer and heavier, textured impasto at the top. Some parts are scraped away to reveal the drawing beneath, and in some places, they are left as a mere hint.
I only worked a short time this morning in the studio.
A friend from Jumptown was killed in a BASE jumping accident in Switzerland this morning. It came as quiet a shock to all of us within the small aviation/skydiving community. To watch a gifted athlete doing what they love to do, and doing it with breathtaking skill, is a beautiful thing. Goodbye Gary, you and your contagious smile will be sadly missed by many. May your skis be forever blue as you fly so free…
