Sometimes I like to think of my little 6x6 paintings as oil sketches, they let me test out a composition without a huge commitment. And if I do a little sketch that I think turned out well then I would be a little foolish to not make something more out of it right? I'm a little torn on the subject.
But here is a larger version of one of my smaller paintings from a few weeks ago. I'm trying to get a few more large pieces done for a show next weekend. Of course "large" is only 12x12 since that's all I can really fit in our tiny temp apartment. Hopefully when we move I'll convince myself to work on much larger paintings, that would of course take a lot longer than one day.
