I took the painting entitled Addie and added a few layers to her. There are a few more canvases eagerly awaiting the same treatment . . . or not. They're not really speaking to me this week.

|Charon Floating Toward Adulthood, 36" x 36", acrylic, pastel, paper on canvas, 2013|
Although the white-washed pieces are fantastic--and I want to continue exploring that palette and the softening and addition of layers--the color here feels quite strong and not overpowering. I like the effect. It opens up the work to more interpretation and space.
I believe the work is maturing nicely. And I like the structure of having a day job with limited time allotted to creation. It gives me time to ponder and solve problems before putting my hands on the work. Now I just need to find my sense of humor again, and some threads of sociability.
