New Work

Detail of sketch by Amy Crehore 2008

Here is a detail of a sketch for one of my new paintings. I don't want to show the whole thing yet, it would give away my "punch line". I am happily finishing up 3 new works on linen canvas this week. Everything takes longer than I think it will, but in the end it's worth it. I'm using lots of layers of oil paint and striving for some seamless designs. As I work, I am transported back in time to early primitive Italian art, Bosch, Remedios Varo and growing up in N.J.-- all at once! I need to start blogging more about my own art now. Things are happening this summer: a New York show and a show in Las Vegas. More about all that later.
