Starting the work of putting to bed all the things that need to be done. All the little works you make when the big project support does not come through, all the one offs and small series are beginning to take form. Getting things done, with small bites and bits. This years focus is on my own work, to grow that to where I want it to be.
These are little acrylic paintings- oh how I miss having oil paints. I will do more, and push then some more, not truly satisfied yet. They go back to the 20 friends project, which I need to finish the write up on and small book document- deadline of mid-feb for that. Just keep making.
On a side note, It is funny how long it has taken me to recover bits and pieces of the studio, after 2009’s months of homelessness. Hindsight being what it is, I would have surreptitiously put the oil paints in the storage unit. C’est la vie. Hopefully this year I can slowly build the stock back up. I like acrylics for this type of work, but, feel that there is a butteriness that is missing. Sweet beautiful oils, I miss them.
