the illusion continues

this is as far as I have gotten on it today. I need to stop on it for a while and let it simmer

illusion in progressive views

I have been kind of snowed in, came home from work yesterday and didn't go today. It just keeps snowing like crazy, we haven't had a winter like this for a while. After duct taping my deteriorating ski boots together I have been getting some good cross country skiing in almost everyday for about 2 weeks. Amazing. I have also been getting a lot of studio time so I started a new painting, even though I have several that need to be finished.... I was looking through the "Illustrated Golden Bough" and was intrigued by a drawing of a painted drum head from Lapland. It looked like a time line of sorts and I have been intrigued by levels of reality lately and wanted to work with that so this is what developed from that and i am showing the steps in how this painting is developing. I think it is roughly 30 x 40 I forgot to measure... It still has a lot of problem areas, but has really been holding my interest.

swingin and jack of clubs continued

We have had a big snowstorm at least 9 inches and the electricity was off for 36 hours. I painted in the studio when it was light. I am still working on these 2 paintings.
