Building portrait for Lise Meitner
So for the last seven years while working in tech I had been creating small paintings, 5″ x 5″ to 16″ x 20″. Coding is hard work. I was learning, thinking, and using syntax 14 hours a day. Some where in that mind alteration I was able to painting one hour a day and 6 hours on the weekends.
The images below show the stage by stage evolution of one painting. This 48″ x 48″ size oil painting is the second largest scale oil I have painted in the last 10 years. Let’s watch its progress because I have no idea how it will be painted or how it will turn out.

Stage 21: Today I added some strange boot around the alpha particle…Hummm. I can start to see a conclusion. It’s funny because this painting came up fast, usually I don’t trust a painting that resolves itself too quickly. However, the size of this work is exciting in enables me to almost live inside the piece.
