Things are moving along here in my new studio. It took a little while for me to get accustomed to the climate in the east coast in regards to paint drying time. I definitely took for granted how quickly oil dries during the winter in the Bay Area vs the East Coast. This oil on canvas painting is slowly coming along. It is one of several I am working on right now. Not sure if I will end up hanging this diptych by placing a hinge on the back or will just hang them together with a two/three inch space between. I’m on the fence so I think I will need hang it both ways when I am done and decide what the best way to showcase this piece will be.
