Stillwater Griffins

Stillwater Griffins, 18 x 18"each; oil and wax medium on panels. Please click this to enlarge!
Sometimes, things just take as long as they take. I had more false starts on these things than I care to recall. Changes; add wax medium, ugh, too much blue. Add red and orange, oh no, eek, too much! Gray it down, gray it down, hey ... that might work.

They are still a little different, for me, but I like them now. About ... 20 months, I think, after I started them.

The basis is a pair of bas-relief griffins on a streetside wall in, you guessed it, Stillwater. I photographed them in October 2010 and started these panels not long afterward.


  1. great photos! I would love it if we followed each other. I'll be following you through GFC!
