'Road Kill', the Slow Reveal

I tend to follow the same process with each painting. The drawing is done on tracing paper using a grid then transfered to canvas. Every step following that is detailed above.

Apologies for the really bad photos but our little digital camera is not kind to large flat surfaces (I still use film). Promise a good image of this and others when I find a way to do them justice.

The painting is called 'Road Kill', 46" X 30", acrylic on canvas, ca. 2010.

Coco, 18" X 20", acrylic on canvas, 2009.

Crush, 18" X 20", acrylic on canvas, 2009.

Crushed cans are a challenging subject, maybe that was the initial fascination. There's also something about the individuality they take on after being subjected to overwhelming force, the end product of an entirely random series of events.

It's probably time I posted some work (or anything for that matter) on this blog. All relatively speaking recent pieces. I am not prolific. In any case the work itself dictates what needs to be done and how much time is required to complete it. I sometimes feel I'm being led by the whole process.
