I started this painting a long time ago, and decided I wanted to finish it up and move on to other personal works. It had been sitting for awhile in the studio, but then I got asked to participate in a group show. I figured this was a good incentive to finish it up. Lately I have been really enjoying surface texture , although I feel I was getting a bit self-indulgent. The piece will be at the 99% Gallery in Brooklyn , NY. The show opens July 16th.

Lastly, just a sketch from the sketchbook:
