"Before"… finished !

It took a while, but it is finally finished.

The vacation and holidays at the end of December was the perfect time to get this painting wrapped up … probably due to some very cold weather and some good movies on TV that encouraged me to stay inside !

I used a very translucent acrylic blue (“Prussian blue”, I think) which gave the body a “scratchy” or “beaten-up” look which I liked. It also hinted at an unhealthy lifestyle… to go along with the “boxed-in” and “black clouds” that have “haunted” the subject of this painting.

Selling it?
I probably won’t sell this painting right away. I am hoping to have “Before” and “After” completed and hung side-by-side so selling the first one is out of the question … at least for a while.

Next…
I am already working on “After” … which seems appropriate as we head into the “New Year’s Resolution” season.

Tune in here for updates on the next painting.
