Oil On Canvas. 

The Sum Of Its Parts

I've been noodling around with this painting for a while, and it had lots of texture but I was fighting the texture, so I took a page out of Richard Pousette-Dart's book and began to put a bunch of blobs onto the canvas straight from the oil tubes, like confection on a cake. I used copper, gold and silver oils too. But, I didn't like it either. So then I got the impulse to schmoosh it all that paint with a ginormous palette knife. So I did.
