Another helpmate I bought this week to help me squeeze every last bit of paint out of my tubes is this little 'tube wringer'!! Worth every penny - it will pay for itself in just a couple of weeks for sure! If you don't have one, get it!!
Like most of you, squeezing studio time into this time of year can be pretty hit and miss. I've had several really good afternoons and continue to learn more and more about this cold wax medium. Today I used the dry pigments in the wax and really liked it!! The painting below I finished this afternoon. It is a rework of a painting that I really didn't like or more true, a painting I didn't really connect with. This finished work I feel very connected to.
oil, wax, dry pigments on panel, 24x24, 'After She Stopped Counting the Steps'
