Acrylic on wood

Boring. Uninspired. Muddy. Just a few words describing this week's first foray into the jewels. Can you tell how excited I am by it? It could be my allergies talking, but I just wasn't groovin' on the easel today. Oh yeah, and this is the good one from today! Yeah, It wasn't for lack of effort but I can admit when I've had my ass handed to me. They can't all be winners.

It has been awhile since I have looked at your paintings and from my perspective, I don't look at individual jewels so much as the direction you are going. And recent ones are wonderful in their color and texture and variety. This one also has more of the wood character in it. I like seeing the splintering of the edge. And I like it as more of a stain quality. It is beginning to move in new directions which could become as exciting as your jewels. A degree of frustration does show well. This frustration is just part of the general process and also makes way for new creativity.
I am so pleased to see your development.
