5 x 5 Oil on Gessobord
Number 13 in the Scratching the Surface series
Reworked on 11/16/12
This series of scratching/sgrafitto paintings has been fun and such an experience of discovery, and I'm so encouraged by all the feedback I've received on Facebook from artists whose work I really admire. It's my attempt to go beyond pretty to adding energy and life, to leave something of myself with each painting.
"Apple Saucy" is a redo of an older painting, but I'm not going to post the original...it was really bad and looked nothing like this version. Just a bunch of colors thrown at the board. Besides I'm starting to look at some of my older paintings as just "not finished".
