“First Plunge Baby VI” is a new 36″ square heavy gallery wrap, ready to hang. I am intrigued by how as soon as they hatch, the little sea turtles climb out of a mound of sand and instinctively make their way to the surf. Such brave little ones. I have been exploring making my brush strokes more impressionistic but deliberate.
“Sea Turtles in the Current” is 36×36″ highly texture, palette knife painting that I started several years ago. 2018 arrived and I was determined to finish it. Working this abstractly really forces me to apply paint in a very concise way. Metallic golds peek out from the heavy paint strokes
Some of the areas in the painting have gold metallic touches and plaster dimensional knife strokes.
