Emotions Exposed…

Canvas prepped and waiting to be painted, white areas are gesso, leaving areas of blank raw canvas.

Starting a new series. Painted on a nice gray linen, I decided to leave parts of the canvas exposed to show the beauty of the canvas alone. Each painting will be named after an emotion, all positive emotions. So, I came up with the obvious name for the series, “Emotions Exposed”. So far I have four of the 7 paintings started. All are still works in progress.

The current series I’m working on is all 20 x 20″ linen canvas with portions of the gray canvas exposed. There will be at least 7 paintings in this series. So far I’m really liking the exposed canvas, what do you think? I think of these two paintings as chaos and order! Not sure how they got so far off from each other, but I have been painting on them both at the same time. They are my yin and yang of the current moment.
