Moving on to the next large painting.  Here are the parts on my painting wall.  

Done?  I don’t know.  It will hang around for a week or two until I decide if it is done or not.  The final size is 48 X 48 on wood panels.  What do you think?  Is it done?

Work still in process.  I pushed the pieces together today to see how they are relating to each other.  I will split them up and keep on working.

A few more days work done.  Still a long way to go.

Work continues on the parts.  Can you picture them joined?  Working large is slow.  Lucky for me I live in the desert and the oil paint dries faster than other places.  It still takes days and days.

Work continues on these parts of larger paintings.  At least I have “killed” all the white gesso on the panels.  

I have been asked to explain my process so here is the first posting in a series of work in progress.  Both of these are the start of much larger pieces.  These two panels are 24X36 and will be part of two pieces that will end up being 48X48.  This is just the start they will become much more abstract once the many layers of paint are applied.  They will have other panels joined to them to make the final piece.  I will post more images as the works progress.
