Emergence of A
Since I haven't gotten to post any new finished paintings, here is one of my favorites. This is a painting of my daughter (she was about 13). This was an actual class assignment. I had to divide up a large canvas into 16 sections. I underpainted each section with a different color. I then started the composition over the 16 multi-colored sections. I was supposed to use a different technique or approach in each of the sections, which I actually did, but it is hardly apparent in the final painting. This is quite large 30x40 or (something of the sort). Shazza, I know you've seen it. I have been struggling with the title. It was originally Entangled Adolescent, but I've been thinking that she really wasn't entangled, she was just emerging from the winter branches. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I will never sell this piece, but I will probably give it to daughter A some time in the future.
