This is another painting that I began last August and it is another that I purposely waited to resume until this August.
It is under-painted with oil and cold wax because in subsequent applications I wanted to manipulate and draw into it. In order to build dimension with impasto I also enjoyed working into the waxed surface with a large painting knife.
August, Remains of the Day

I’ve made a conscious effort to assess and resume work that I’ve put away for long periods, sometimes because at the time I was ‘hitting a wall’ and feeling lost, or others, like the one above, simply because now the time is right.
