Vulnerability Three

vulnerability-three

I’ve taken a lot of chances in this painting and pushed a lot of boundaries.

Even calling the painting finished at this point is a risk for me. I’m definitely pushing beyond my comfort zone. I could work on it so much more and smooth out all of the strokes but I want to do more than smooth skin. I want to do more than copy an image.

With this painting I’m taking one step closer to a deeper authenticity within.

More of the same but the images don’t show it.

Stroke after stroke I keep adjusting and re-adjusting the subtle colors of the skin.
