"Milkweeds"; 25 x 25"; acrylic on paper mounted on panel; 2017
I am finding more time for the studio now that the spring semester has concluded. I resolved the painting above and am still working on the one pictured below. The milkweed pods are much more literal in the piece below, and I am uncertain whether or not I will leave them as they are. Just last week I reintroduced the background color over the group of two pods at the top leaving some areas of the underlying painting visible and scratching lines into the color while it was still workable. While it largely obliterated the forms, it also made them much more exciting.
