I told Renda today that my MSW friend, Mo, would be rather concerned that I might be becoming manic-depressive. But, Mo saw this kind of behavior in college, before portfolio reviews. It’s not that I procrastinate…that’s not it…but in the crunch, right before the show or review is when I produce my best work. So, this should be a very good ride. I am done for the night as far as painting, but I may post a few more pieces to ebay and Etsy before bed.
So, this is not just a numbers game. Since I am the Gatehouse’s first, she deserves the best I can give her. Her reputation, as well as mine, rest on that. Hear me Malynda! My show at the Rochester Library will be my third with Peggy Trout-they deserve a superb show too. I am hoping to not have to pull the show in Tamworth to hang the show at the library-in other words, have a really good stock to work with.
New work, some that is really close, and I am lovin’ most of it:
Like this one-oh, my. I find this to be a real close approximation of what I am trying to do with my painting. Working these transparencies has been a challenge. Finding a medium that woukld behave for the lines was not nearly the challenge I thought it would be, but it was an unexpected solution.
As “unpainted” as this may appear, there is quite a bit of pigment in those gray areas.
This the first. I have three more images to post, and knowing what happens with images here…
I did look at brisket yesterday, but I always seem to throw out the left-overs. And, since I am from So. Cal, there is no such thing as too much Mexicano faire.
I may do this a several posts because what I accomplished today was pretty amazing. I set out to finish three pieces. I got all three close. And, I worked on 8 more.
It’s been a long day…
