New Painting

Finished a new painting this weekend. Nice and simple, but trying to avoid the standard gesso white backgroud. I used a yellowy ochre paint for the background that is about 80% opaque, leaving the texture a bit up to randomness. The effect looks basic from a distance and gets a bit trippier up front--it breaks down into ellipses and hourglasses. Potentially showing at a gallery next week, so this will find a new home soon.
