Canvas 1/5, remember it is only at state 2, acrylic/printmaking
artwork by Elizabeth Seaver
Yes, I do. I finish lots of them. But if I plan to put it in a showing of new work (as is the case with some of these latest beginnings,) I intend to save the final reveal for the opening. If it falls out of the show line-up, I will post the finished painting.
Also, I like to work on several pieces at once, and it is not a linear nor even a particularly circular process. Some observers might say it appears haphazard, or more kindly, a puzzling, almost mystical ritual wherein the artist moves randomly from piece to piece, muttering to herself and changing her brush water with frequency. So, I do tend to hop around showing you first this piece and then that one. You MUST buckle your seat belt.
This piece appeared in its first state in a previous but recent post as the canvas flat on the table. I will continue to push and pull the lights and darks as I work on it. I also plan to create some other item of interest in the piece besides the texture--not sure what that's going to be yet.
