 6x6 Oil
16x20 Oil
Although most of my paintings are done in one or two sittings while wet, occasionally I have paintings that need a bit more time.  I have in the past been reluctant to work on a dry painting for fear of taking the freshness out of it but am now more confident about being able to improve upon the brushwork and composition.  The above two paintings sat around for a while but I wasn't really happy with either. I reworked them and I think that they are more successful now both in technique and design.
