Pentimento

IMG_4323.JPG
At an opening of mine the other night, my high school art history teacher, whose teaching style and enthusiasm for art history was absolutely invaluable to me at that point in my life, commented on Pentimento. We were discussing one of my paintings, and I was showing him evidence of a previous painting on that canvas, before I decided to change directions. I do this quite often, paint over old paintings that I have no use for anymore. This new landscape is an example of that habit. I started a portrait a couple of months ago that I never ended up finishing. So! Now it’s a landscape. But, I thought it was cool to see the transformation.

Here are a few shots. Starting the landscape, mid point, and finished landscape with some detail shots.

New Contemporary Landscape Painting

Here’s a new landscape, a little different from my current style. Also, my husband and I are in Washington DC for a photo shoot. We rose at 4:30am to film a time laps of the sunrise. I took a quick panorama stretching from the Lincoln Memorial to the Washington Monument.

A Landscape Close to my Heart

Boston Landscape Painter

I’ve been painting these landscapes for a while now. I always feel attached to the older ones where I was experimenting so I could learn what the hell I was doing. That is the most enjoyable moment in painting, not knowing where it’s going so you end up messing around with ideas. This particular painting was a big stepping stone for me. I seemed to be stuck in the same routine, so I took this as an opportunity to not think…not have a predetermined outcome. I learned a tremendous amount while painting this painting.
Here are some detail shots.
