The Pearl Street Project - Carol

Carol, continued.
So, this painting has gone through a lot.  I haven't posted it for a while and if you scroll down to the last image of it, you'll see the difference. Not only did the painting itself progress, but the canvas size was altered. I felt that there was too much empty space surrounding the figure and that it seemed like filler, so I lopped off a few inches on the right and left sides, a good choice in my opinion.  The painting isn't quite done yet. I had this project put on display at the Museum of WI Art for a while and it caused me to pause the project for that time.
And what a thing it is: to physically be restrained from finishing a painting for months and then go back to it.  I feel like I'm a different person since when I last painted on this, so now what? I want to breathe a different sense of life into it, but do you do that when it is already so far along?  I will. I feel braver and I can see how the changes might happen. Thank God Carol is patient.

The Pfister Project

These are the three paintings I have going at the hotel. Essentially, the idea is that I am painting the employees that agree to sit for me.  So far, these three have.  You'd think more people would volunteer, but it's not true.  I've got more people interested now, but it took some work.  It is a time commitment because it takes about 20 hours of sitting in all, so I understand.  You can see more progress by clicking the link to the Pfister blog.
