"What the Distracted One is Thinking", 18"x18", mixed media and oil on canvas. The last day of school always makes me a little nostalgic. The early summer light, the passage of time. I’m working from a series of small paintings from a year or so ago. Layers of paint beginning with acrylic and ending with oils. Some of the projects I did with students (especially concerning pattern) have clearly influenced what I’m up to here.
