Mixed media series – oil over acrylic and pastel / charcoal on canvas

“The Grifter – man with a plan” – 36″ x 36″, oil over acrylic on canvas

In preparation for adding more exhibit space at Fogue Studios and Gallery’s main gallery, I’ve been working on a couple different series projects. The first, a series of 24″ x 24″ oil paintings is still an ongoing, but once again I felt the call of larger canvases, and so I picked up several 36″ x 36″, canvases recently – some new, and some with underlying acrylic work – and have set about putting together a series of four.

“The Grifter – man with a plan” was the second of the pieces that resulted from this new grouping, and I am quite tickled with him.

The 3rd piece, “Generosity – her hands open” is now drying in the studio as I plan to get to work on the fourth piece. And I’m diggin’ her, too. This mix of oil over acrylic is incredibly satisfying to work with as I am working one palette over another both in medium as well as in color choices, and it is exhilarating both visually and tactilely.

The first piece in this series, “The Populist – man on fire”, now seems slightly out of step with the two that followed, although I like him very much. But perhaps he will best be left for a different series or as a stand alone piece in the future.

Am super excited to see how the final series comes together. Stay tuned!
