“Uffizi”

"Uffizi"

“Uffizi”, my newest work. 18×24 oil on canvas and a whole bunch of challenge. Trying to find time to paint (time that isn’t already dedicated to the Mural Project I and working on for the Biggar Museum & Gallery) and trying to solve what turned into a very boring painting.

I hung “Uffizi” over my tv to ensure maximum viewing time. This way I think about how to solve my painting problem all the time, even when I’m not aware of it. After a couple days I felt confident attacking it with a palette knife and a free hand. I feel that it has the motion and vibrancy I wanted to communicate. I like that bits of the woman in this painting are floating away…like being lost in the Uffizi (which is super easy to do)
