Farewell 2010

S Apart Gouache on Paper 30" x 34" 2010

Here's the latest painting made for Triple Base's 3rd Out of the Flat Files exhibition. The last work of 2010, a pretty productive year of several dark paintings of cameras in varied states of deconstruction. This marks the peak of larger and larger water-based gouache paintings. People seem to like them, this one got snatched up right away by a discerning collector, and it's a good use of the medium. It's miserable to have a studio full of oil paintings collecting dust and wasting space so works on paper are my new passion. Does this mean the end of oil painting for me? Maybe but probably not. There's no substitute, really.
