The sun came out today so I hauled the new diptych out for a photo. Primeval is acrylic on canvas, 48 x 60" total size (48 x 36" and 48 x 24". As mentioned before, I started this painting some time back. I got off track with a couple of commissions and just got back to it last week. I just kept staring at it...loving so many things about it but also thinking about my usual layering and all that. This one is different. I have no idea if anything will change on other paintings in the future, but this one has much more transparency vs. opaque areas than has been my usual process for quite some time. More than likely it is just a "gift" of some kind. AND, I'll take it since I like it.
