11 x 14 inch oil

I am having some more fun with "fracturing".  Love this technique because you really can't make a mistake.

These are some experiments in loosening up with a small format painting.    They are all done in oil and in alla prima style.

More fun with "fracturing"

I thought I would post this new attempt at "fracturing".  I did this over an old painting and I like this version much better than the original.  The paint is positively glowing and very juicy.  Love it!

16 x 20 inch oil "Found Treasures"

I am almost finished this painting after much anguish.  I really did not enjoy painting this canvas and I am not really sure why.  I still have some finishing to do on the eggs and cloth because I am not happy at all with how they are looking.  After my fun with the fracturing technique this one seemed really a chore.

I am trying a new technique called fracturing developed by Julie Oliver. It is quite different from what I have been doing lately but I am really having fun with it.  The pears are an old painting that I painted over with the fracturing technique and the boats is a new painting.  I think I may have went overboard with the boat painting but I have to say it was a lot of fun.
