DAILY PAINTING: I mentioned that I am working at two different paintings concurrently. This is the second, also an abstract, but with a very different mood than the other. I began with watercolor paper, which has been mounted on a solid birch panel. I'm working with a very bright, upbeat palette. Yesterday & today, I spent time cutting a simple paper stencil (from scrap paper, which is the reason you see some print on the white paper), which I attached today, using a thin coat of cold wax.
