"The Last Farewell"
11" x 14"
Acrylic on Amate Bark on hardboard

While I haven't been sharing many photos of new paintings, I can assure you that I have been busy painting in the studio. I did want to share a small painting from my time in the studio last night. I recently started painting on Amate (ah-ma-tay) bark. It is a very interesting surface to paint on. It is made by the Otomoi (oh-toe-me) Indians of Mexico by pounding the bark fibers of fig and mulberry trees on a wooden board and drying the sheets in the sun. If you want to try something new, stop by City Art and pick some up! And, stay tuned for information about an upcoming solo show!
