These paintings aren’t quite finished, but I’m excited to show them anyway.

I am just loving working with egg tempera. It is like the best of acrylic and oil paints for me; like acrylic, it “dries” quickly, so I can play with layering of textures, etc., but like oil, it has a long “open” time in that it is easily reconstituted with water, so I can wipe away areas, etc. The dog/bunny combo above is 10″ x 8″; the bunny below is 4″ x 4″.
