Paintings I sanded down
When I first began painting I was enamored with bright, bold, expressive graphic-y stylized subjects. Over time, however, because I wanted to also learn traditional painting, I learned to love neutrals and natural looking subjects. There are still things I like about this early painting of mine..I like how you can sense there are eyes there, even though they are just suggested. This is one of the paintings I sanded away (so I can re-use the support). I took photos of everything for old time's sake.
