This painting is a follow up to an old painting called "22." After finishing it, I more or less vowed never to use this style of minimalist lines over a wash again. Even though I had planned on doing the self portrait below as such. This has a very graphic design kind of feel that I would like to get away from. But I still can't force myself to do straight up realism. This actually was done before the self portrait just to clarify. Not that I think that is the direction my style is going in. That is actually too abstract. I am not sure what will evolve. Not that I don't like this. It just seems like 11 years ago it was something fun, and now it isn't.
