|"Three by the Pool", 30"x30", oil and encaustic wax on panel|
I am still working on the monkey bar painting. It started out as a diptych but the first panel wasn't turning out the way I wanted it. The figures were blurry and didn't have much contrast. They were looking cartoony, so instead of having a weak panel in this diptych, I decided to get rid of the first panel and just keep the second. The second one works well on it's own and is fun. My art assistant loves the fact that there's a girl with no head in the painting. I think it makes for an interesting composition.
