oil figure sketch

..more making marks and throwing turp spawned this sketch of a figure - oil on board, 18x24"

I could seriously just make marks and throw and drip turp all day.  It's one of my favorite things to do.  Sometimes I get figures, and sometimes I get sort of SciFi/fantasy type landscapes.  Or sometimes they're just marks.  Love doing them.  And I have a ton of these!  I've usually just called them starts or WIPs.  I put them aside with the intention to keep working on them.  But sometimes I think..maybe they are just finished.  There's a life to them this way that might just be best kept in this state.
