Studio Day

Today is clean the studio day. It's become a jumbled mess of paints and boxes of supplies and who knows what. Since I work in cramped quarters, sharing my studio with two computers and a whole lot of laundry, I have been sitting monk style on the floor working on my painting. Needless to say after about 45 minutes my back is aching, I need a break and some stretches and it's just not conducive to being productive. Time to change the method!
The painting is coming along well, I have got a lot of work done on it this weekend. I have also created a lot of work with each new thing I add to it. Taking small snapshots of it as it progresses has been fun, I like looking at the little details. It gives me ideas for new compositions.
It's just after 6am and I wonder why in the hell I'm up so early?

New Listing Peeps!

Just listed a new tiny painting on etsy. I like the 8" x 8" format and the deep edge. I think I will do more of these, if anything it will be fun to hang them all on a wall in a grid or something fun.
I also just posted one of my older paintings from 2005. That was a fun, painstaking series which involved sitting on hot concrete while ants crawled on me and my painting. Good times!

Work In Progress

This is a detail from a work in progress. I like being able to look at my work while I'm away from it to keep the creative stew simmering in my head. Definitely one of the stranger palettes I've delved into.

This was no Colony Collapse

I just fell off the blog wagon but now I'm back!
A brand new painting is well underway and I will be showing it soon at a prestigious spot....the Dallas Museum of Art! I'm really getting into some new color palettes and territory with this new piece. I'm excited!
I have been working on this piece for almost two months and it's driving me insane and yet I'm addicted to working on it. So many new ideas have come forth from this one.
I guess I should catch the blog readers out there up on what's been going on with me. Not a lot but oh so much. You know what I mean.
I have had a vacation, just finished up two events, got some press, had some drama (remind me to tell you about my crazy neighbor and the bugspray someday), sold two paintings, discovered some cool new places around town and generally have just been doing my thing.
I'm really looking forward to this small lull where I can just paint and refocus my energies and perspective. I'll be updating and hopefully soon will be sharing some new photos.
