This painting is NOT done. ick.
I first painted this about 10 years ago... I never liked it. It was flesh tones with dark greens and blacks... just gross. Last week I intended to GESSO over it. Then decided that maybe it was worth re-visiting.
Departure has been part of the last several months.... departing souls, like this is depicting... but also departing jobs, governments, etc.
Departure creates change. New jobs, new president.... but departed souls can't be replaced. Still... maybe its not all bad.
