Notes for July 14, 2013

"October Surprise", 2013. mixed media including plaster, photo, twigs, oils, 11" x 14".

“October Surprise”, 2013. mixed media including plaster, photo, twigs, oils, 11″ x 14″.

As the work continues to evolve, I am having successes and failures. This is probably the most stable, and for that reason, the most successful, plaster piece to date. I think, after this one, I will reserve plaster work for cooler, drier days. In the meantime, though this piece is off-topic, because it really doesn’t have any social message, the snow/plaster combination seems to be working.

"Mettle", 2013, oil photo, copper foil and wire on canvas, 12" x 12".

The copper and wire are not here yet, and this is in it’s infancy. This piece will be part of the Moderns show at the KAA in September. Even with Liquin, this little bit of impasto is still wet.

My economic situation seems to be changing, and I am feeling comfortable with the idea of buying the necessary equipment to start working in paint again. Feels great!!
