Painting Re-Do: Process Video

I've been taking some time to focus on making new and interesting artwork.  I have at least a dozen new pieces of big artwork that I haven't shared yet.  And a lot of that new artwork has stemmed from working into old artwork that no longer serves me. 

In 2016, I taught several classes in Australia.  One of them was called, "Go Big or Go Home."  I sold one of my demo paintings and the other one I ripped off the frame and rolled up in my suitcase.  It remained rolled up for the last six years.  But earlier this month I decided to take it out and see if I could reimagine it.  Watch the video to see the process:

Monthly members of all levels can watch the real time video of this process.  It's about two-and-a-half hours long.

And here's a photograph of the finished pieces as well as a look at some of the details:

Suffice it to say, a lot has changed for me over the past six years.  I'm not the same person or the same artist.  It's good to know that hard work does lead to wonderful changes!  Sometimes the change is so slow that you can see it, but it's definitely there. 

Thanks for stopping by!
