Paintings In-progress

I have been working on eight new acrylic paintings in my “Metamorphosis” series for my exhibit in May. Usually I work on two or three at a time — but never this many simultaneously. It has been interesting to work this way. At first I just wanted to get the color brushed on all of the surfaces (which is how I begin with these). Then I began in earnest on one piece moving my brush strokes from that random stage to making more deliberate decisions allowing my inspiration to guide me. As that piece dried I moved on to another one and so forth. We’ll have to see if progress continues this way or if I end up focusing on one or two at a time until complete.
