About

Welcome to the project Amphitrite. What is this about? A painting.  I have set a goal of creating a painting of a siren.  I intend to work on it for the next 365 days documenting my progress. So far my plan is simple – I begin by brainstorming all kinds of ideas, researching what has been done in the past, and waiting for an idea to emerge that will resonate with me…

The final painting will be oil on canvas, approximately 24 x 48 inches in total size, although I will not know the exact format until the final composition is settled upon. I will post here all kinds of information about the process, will talk about my technique, all the little steps, and if this is of any use to anyone out there – that’s really wonderful, otherwise this journal here is a tool for me to reflect on my own journey and also help refine my process and document my progress.  It’s an experiment…
