Works in progress

Here are some works I have on the go and kind of show the dilemma I have with my own work presently.

The self portrait is fairly new and I have only had a few sittings with but I was reading and think about Antonio Garcia Lopez and his approach to "realism"....more on that in a latter post

The other work is a resurrection idea. Not necessarily a messianic one, rather I was thinking of the resurrection of the figure in art.

I apologize for the awful quality of the photos. I will have better quality ones when the works are completed.

  1. I like the works in progress! And I am very much looking forward to your thoughts on realism--I know in high school we talked about the Old Masters (wow, that sounds nerdier when you typed it out), but it looks like you've delved into many different traditions since. Tell me what you know!

  2. The self portrait is coming along beautifully Gare! And this is Carolyn by the way :P.
