Olive In Progress

December 2, 2017
   Working on a familiar visage.

Daily Whip Out: "Olive In Progress, No. 2"

   This is a big, hot press board, which means I can easily take away paint wherever I want, adding and subtracting passages as I go:

Daily Whip Out: "Olive In Progress, No. 3"

   Want to capture something of her plight and insecurity but also her acceptance and resilience. She had strong survival instincts and they served her well. Decided to subtract some of the above paint and give it another wash:

Daily Whip Out: "Olive In Progress, No. 4"

   Breasts need work.

   That's what she said.

    Okay, woke up this morning and gave it another go:

Daily Whip Out: "Olive Gone Native"

"When he was down they turned on him to betray him and rend him like rats in a sewer. Lowlived dogs! And they look it! By Christ, they look it."
—James Joyce, "A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man"
