LONGING, oil on board 16 x 16"

I haven't written anything for a couple weeks as I've been working on several paintings.

It seems that I go back and forth between painting and the glass over painting mosaic projects. I don't understand how someone can just do an endless series of the same sort of thing. I go to gallery shows and everything looks like it was done with a formula. I tend the repeat myself trying to improve on what I did, and also perfect an idea or go deeper, but it often changes dramatically in form. That's how I got to the mosaics over painting, for instance.

Anyway, the piece I've finished is called "longing", and I have it here. The next one after that which I hope to finish soon is called "the secret". Both are oils in a sort of realistic style.
