Mingster Two

The background, base painting here comes from an earlier body of work I called "Glaze Paintings". They were Alkyd resin based mediums tinted with oil paint colors. In that body of work, I would pull sheets of tinted resin across the canvas, building a painting slowly... then, I would cut a frisket and prcisely stencil what amounted to notations of the underlying base. It's a long story.

The short story is that I have resumed the base painting here in trying to get at the inspiration that hit me recently in NYC: the Ming paintings.

I'm a little rushed now because Stephanie and I flying off to LA this weekend to see her Dad, who is battling a tough illness. So far, he's doing good, but it's touch and go.

So, Here are the images of the work on paper I finished last night in the very wee hours of the morning.
