Three pieces in process and 3 new canvases for revisit of 1970's notebook work on the way. Very exciting. Three more realism pieces on the boards also. Windows, Musician and Old Machines pieces.

I used some old techniques for painting with sand as part of this new "City Skin " painting today and the results were good -lots of room to explore with my three base surfaces now and do some more "Farhads Zone" approaches to compositions as well as applications to the City Skin work..
