Towards Lake Ontario



These last 2 small works were done on unprimed paper....that's what I started painting on many years ago, but almost everything lately has been done on primed paper. It felt good getting back to the 'raw' surface. Every little change in procedure is significant in the flow of the work.

Home Site 1 and 2





8 x 8 inch acrylic on matte board, unprimed. Every so often I revert back to an umprimed surface. The feel is very different from a gessoed surface and is a bit more akin to drawing. The second image was made right after the first.
