In the studio

The Professor is at work in his studio now that school is over. Here is the painting he was working on at the end of the semenster.
Odysseus on the Circe's Island 48x48 07-2011
When he put it together it all worked; he did not need to do anymore. He did not expect that. The two others upon which he is working are fermenting for a while.  Having a full day to work produces much.
Here are a few examples.

Pretty Island with Waterfall 14x12 07-2011

Yesterday he began a larger picture. Here is a sequence of the first day's work.

The Professor left it to rest for a few days. Today he took a fragment of a 1976 mermaid painting that he had preserved from a year ago when he had used the other parts and torn it up to rework.

Now he will work each section separately which will take weeks. He does not intend to devote every day to this.

He began this months ago. When he was able to see it from a distance in his new studio, he was able to finish it.
