Well, yesterday I posted some progress photos of my latest painting, and asked for suggestions on the title. Today I put in several hours of work and I’m pretty much finished with the painting, I do need to do a little minor touch up work where a stray drop of paint has landed or where an earlier layer of color shows through a top layer that is supposed to be opaque, I’ll also paint the sides of the canvas in black all around, and then put an isolation coat on and a coat of varnish… but the basic painting is done. Once the touch up is done I’ll set up good photography equipment and take a high quality photo to post, but for now, my cell phone photo is going to have to do.
I’ve also given a title lots of thought, and to me, each of the sections in this painting is like a door or portal into an isolated world of optical wonder and illusion. So I’m strongly considering the title “Inlets to Illusion”.
