During the second half of the semester we are to create a series of 4 paintings. I've chosen to continue exploring Bleckner's glazing technique on a larger scale using histograms of carcinoid tumors. I survived a burst appendix with severe complications. This near death experience could have saved my life for they found a 2 mil carcinoid tumor on the end of my appendix which was still capsulized. The images are quite abstract and I think will make a good subject.

The challenge for me is that I can only use certain mediums for glazing in the studio. I've had mixed success. I'm adding an additional challenge and will experiment with cold wax technique. Hmmm I wonder if I could use the cold wax for glazing. I plan to create one cold wax painting and perhaps experiment with cold wax as a glaze for the remaining.

Stay tuned to see how successful this emergent can be.
