In the past some of my paintings have stayed around the studio for several years though I’m now trying to push through the remaining few and not let that happen again. This is one of them. I worked on it off and on again for at least 5 to 6 years letting it sit a few months in between the variations for the layers of oil paint to dry.
This painting is signed on the front “2016-2018” because I originally dated it 2016 and then decided to change the top half. I add the “-2018” later. At some point I dated one of the stretcher bars on the reverse “2015”.
