My new work has me returning to my favorite surface to paint and draw on. Wood seems to really resonate with me. It can take lot's of abuse and covering up of mistakes very easily. I also do a lot of sanding,scraping and scratching and wood accepts all of that quite willingly.
This image along with many of mine develop into some sort of figurative image. Mostly unintentionally. The abstract body appeared first. Then the head and eyes. Finally, I added the hand as an afterthought. I hope you like the results. 18"x24" on painted plywood.
