Hot Fun in the Summertime

Hello there,

I have a new painting to share with all of you: "Syracuse Sunburn (2009)."

While working on some more painstaking images, I impulsively began an oil painting I intended to finish quickly. This is why the composition is simple and the range of colors used are limited. This work also gave me the opportunity to experiment with copal medium, which thins oil paint, speeds drying time, and adds a glossy finish. The digital version I am posting is actually a composite of two photographs (one taken with a flash and one without) to give the most accurate representation of the colors and the texture of the work.

Stay tuned for more!
