So, I thought I’d give a live update of sorts in the weeks leading up to my solo exhibition at the Elliott Bay Brewery. Last night, I started on my first painting for the exhibit (I know, so last-minute). So far, I’ve just been laying out the gold background before I’ll eventually add on the bright-blue border and the simplistic portrait at the center of the canvas. I honestly lost count of how many layers I added of the gold paint, but that’s okay — When it comes to gold, there’s no limit, am I right?
Anyway, here are some snapshots from this morning as I kept painting on the gold (you can tell by now I love gold paint):
Stay tuned for more updates!
