Funny you should ask. I was just working on them today.
It should come as no surprise to anyone who knows me that I'll be taking this deadline right down to the wire. I've got six more paintings I need to finish, and about a six weeks to complete them in. That should be just enough time provided I can stay on pace and finish one a week.
Today's visit to the studio sees the following works in progress. I've been doing mostly sketching and underpainting right now, though we did see one painting completed and two stalled.
These are the undepaintings for Midst Steam and Smoke (after Adamson) (left) and Master Keim (after Eugene) (right). So far so good, though it's still early. Good underpaintings are nothing more than a promise.
Once I get through the November exhibition I'll be getting back to these. My goal is to do 12 of them at 12" x 12" and then hopefully show them as a group somewhere. After that, well, I expect I'll have 12 paintings of Taylor Swift, because honestly, who would buy them?
