What’s Goin’ On In the Studio….

Man, I’m finding it hard to get into the studio this month, we’ve got so much stuff going on.  I was starting to get a little freaked out because I only have 20 paintings for the WineFest Art Show, then I remembered that originally, my plan was to create 15 pieces!  OK, I’m good, and if I happen to get a few more done, then that’s bonus nachos….

Jesse and Teresa (wonderful nephew/niece) took the Octopus Painting, and seemed to be quite thrilled with it – their appreciation and enthusiasm for the piece is VERY flattering!

Yesterday and today I managed to:

– Clean most of two parts of my studio, which was a HUGE job

– Put proper hanging wire and hardware on 3 paintings – that doesn’t sound like a big deal, but it’s kinda time-consuming (I am SO appreciative of everything you do for me, Chuck!)

– Get two new canvasses prepped – I painted them w/black gesso

– Start a small 10×10 turtle painting, which is TOTALLY not working.  I’m going to re-do the background, as it’s too similar to the colors in the turtle, sigh…..


– Start a small 10×10 Octopus painting, which is fabulous so far.


– Start a Leftover-Paint-Scraped-Off-The-Table-And-Stuck-Onto-Canvas painting, a la Bob Burridge.  This particular style cracks me up.  I know you’re looking at this and going ….uhhh, whaaaat??…., but trust me, once I do some negative painting it’s going to be great.  It will end up being a pair of swallows sitting together on a wire.


And now I’m going to go lay in the sun……..
