Slow Going

In June, Jack and I are having a 2 person show at the Southern Vermont Art Center in Manchester, VT.  I decided to do a few larger than usual still life paintings.  Here is one that I am currently working on.  Working on a larger painting means not working alla prima, my normal approach, but working in layers.  This is slow going, with a lot of re-working, and trying to keep the painting unified is the biggest challenge.   This painting is 30"x40" and it is an oil on linen.

Congratulations. Good for you. Good to stretch ones limits right. It's looking great, want to see it in person.

Thanks so much, Walter! It is a battle, but I am learning quite a bit.
