Almost two years ago, November 14th 2012, at 2 a.m., I picked up a palette knife for the first time to paint a portrait, after many years of doing it with the brush. I am not quite sure why. But it has been a rewarding journey outside of my commissioned brush portrait work. And also a daring challenge to myself.
Feeling reflective, I did this little collage today of some of my palette knife portraits so far, a collection I am slowly working on for a show. Most are painted from life. It may be many more year until that show. But I am so o.k. with that.
I think they are looking ok. What do you think?
