Here is a new painting! Number 4:
It is called, “King of This.” It’s 24 x 24 inches, oil and pencil on birch panel.
I betcha wouldn’t think that would take a long time, but it did. Oy vhey did it ever. I can’t say why. I hardly know why myself, but here it is now, finished.
The one that is taking the most time, and believe me, I have been working on it between all these other ones, is Number 5, “Rabbi Says.” It has a partial quote on it from Rabbi Moshe Feinstein going around in a sort of spiral and I previously had to paint the outlines, then the lettering, and now I am painting the colors around the letters. Today I painted around the words, “however, that nothing” and it’s not that it took all day, it just took a long fucking time!
Before that I spent a longer time messing about with the photograph above in Photoshop, and before that I was at the post office, if you must know.
Here is Number 6 on my easel:
