New Split Figure

I keep experimenting with figures in my rough palette knife split figure style. There is something I love about the mystery of the figure when separated by the field of the canvas. Will keep pushing this to its limits, including more in wax too. Haven't tried larger sizes yet but that is a direction to try too. This one is 13x13 on hard board.

Last Hawaii Painting

This is another small, 8x10, painting of a scene from my Hawaii trip. It was done with the palette knife so has a nice texture. One difficulty is putting in people at this size and level of detail. May have to use a small brush to finish up with that.
