This painting has issues but I’ve got time. Uniquely for me, I’m working from memory (an absolutely gorgeous sunrise drive across the desert seared into my neurons) and a few very poor photos.
Find me on the 3rd floor of the StoveFactory, Charlestown MA today – Sunday, December 8, 11-5 – last chance for 2019 – I’m overdue for some painting hibernation.
I’ve been cleaning out files and came on ink & watercolor drawings from 20 years ago – I don’t remember what they are about but oh! there’s Bunny!
Coming up this weekend, I’ll have paintings in Roslindale – come find me at Turtle Swamp Brewing! In my free time, when I’m not ordering greeting cards and posting images on line, I’ve moved studios – same building, same hallway, no more luxurious excess space. Pictures will follow once I actually fit everything in and hang my paintings. And then I’ll paint again!
Excellent grey day – none of those fast moving shadows streaking across the vista. These 2 paintings are 8 and 6 inches square and a return to my quick study “postcards from . . .” style. I also tried out a new easel, not bad but not perfect.
This week’s themes involve cleaning in preparation to moving to a new studio and dang! laid low by a cold! I don’t have time for this! so the chicken soup and honey and lemon drenched tea has been drunk in copious amounts and I’ve emptied my studio of bags of trash. A bit of purging old art is freeing for the psyche – and in some spare moments I’ve been sampling a Japanese brush pen which will take some practice but so far rather satisfying. I also met with the dynamic folks of Roslindale Open Studios – what marketing Rock Stars – coming up on October 19 & 20.
