Today in the studio-- i worked on a self portrait i have been thinking about for a while.

the face is broken up into fractures or fragments-- with juxtaposing perspectives and scale.

together.. the pieces make a feeling of disconnect and dissonance... at the same time.. there is a false feeling of unity and portraiture.

the overall composition looks slightly wild and wild-eyed.... a loss gaze.. a sense of fracture....damage...

St Thomas

Still working on smaller 16 x 20 paintings of St. Thomas doorways, gates, vines, and light.
I'm reacquainting myself with acrylic. I've been away for about a year from acrylic... and the nuances are hard to recapture. However, I'm enjoying the process...

Finally finished this acrylic. I haven't painted acrylic in over a year.. so there was a bit of a learning curve. The perspective is striking.. and what motivated me to paint. The feeling is a dizziness that i like.
