This is an unfinished piece that I am currently working on. I started it in late January, mixed all my colors and was ready to dig right in.
But then life happened and I experienced a loss I had never known before when my father passed away February 2. My world was rocked and the painting remained unpainted as my colors began to dry on my pallet.
When I was finally ready to get back into it, most of my acrylics were on the verge of drying out. I scraped and squeezed whatever remaining wet pigment I could get from them before they finally dried out on me. The underlying color structure has been set, but I still need to push and pull more values into the piece to make it stronger, crisper image. As soon as I am able, I’ll crack open the acrylic tubes once more and finish this piece in dedication to the man who encouraged me to chase after my dreams.
