Time marches on, and this January I feel quite changed. It’s a new year with a fresh approach. Here’s how it’s looking:
First, my activity as a painter has become a ‘vocation’. That’s the best way for me to describe it, I think, quite involuntarily, it’s crossed over from a hobby to a vocation. And, i will paint daily, as if it’s a job, aiming for a good chunk of the day. The physical dimensions of my work have expanded- gone big, bigger, biggest. This painting up above called ‘Shed Happens’ is a still life, done from a set-up in my studio. It’s 32″ x 30″, on linen. Also new… I stretched and prepped the canvas myself. These are the updates from my artistic life in January 2016. Prepping my own canvases, going bigger, and putting real work-time into it.
Our art collective, called THIRTY SQUARED, is working once again this month to challenge each other to do some painting every day- no matter if it’s just a layer, or part of a picture, or the whole thing. Our art show last Summer was a success- We’d like to do that again. Stay tuned.
