The Plan

Decided to revisit paintings I've done in class over the past year and a half. As is usually the case most paintings are minimum 4' x 5' so I'm never feeling finished. I like time to go away and come back so I can see it with a different eye. I was experimenting with glazes and cold wax. The first one I'm going to tackle is one that to which I'm not so attached. I'll feel more freedom to experiment. Then hopefully I'll have new knowledge to go on to the next with more intention.

I found an artist Alex Kanevsky through Harry Kent's blog. Thank you Harry. I'm curious to try Kanevsky's approach on a couple of my more abstract paintings.

I think this plan will get me going faster than tackling new painting.


  1. Elizabeth,
    I think you have great courage beginning your art career at this stage. Your art pieces show talent and your work makes it a better place for all of us

  2. Hi Elizabeth ... i've come back to this post one month later and am curious what you discovered in your explorations of Kanevesky (though i'm sure if he read my my posting on his technique he would have a laugh) ... if you managed to find some Mylar sheet and had a play with it, i'd love to see a post on your blog with a pic and some comments as to what you discovered
