The new work is slowly coming together, some more than others. With this piece, tentatively titled "Frozen Flame," I'm pretty happy with the composition but still have quite a bit of work cleaning it up and polishing. When I'm "done" I want to experiment with creating a crackle effect and then polishing black into the cracks.
I'm pretty happy with how the book-matched wedges are coming along. I might want to add a little more yellow to add some intensity but most of the remaining work is in building the shellac and polishing.
But with this triptych I think there is still a long way to go. The top and bottom pieces are getting there but still not great, and the middle piece is way off, it still doesn't have a definitive direction. I should probably take the purple out of the middle and add more blue, perhaps also have some combination of purple or green on the edges.
