New Spaces And New Paintings.
Moving into new spaces has been eating up my time the last couple weeks. It is a bit daunting and a lot exhausting to move, hence no studio time and no blog posts. The very empty room that is to be the studio was just that, very empty. All of sudden, however, it is filling...rapidly....and now that my big easel is in, I will return to painting.
As you can see, the space is not organized yet (what a mess!) some shelving is still in boxes, books and canvases litter the floor, but it is time to paint. Inspired by the color field painters I plan to experiment with large areas of layered pigments. My work is layered already, but typically filled with stylized, subject matter, like the painting sitting on the easel in the photo above and the one shown below. My initial thought is to work without subject matter, but that may change. It will be interesting to see where this goes.

In the words of Mark Rothko, " A painting is not a picture of an experience, it is an experience." Much like the daily drawings of October, time will be spent each day working with pigments, getting lost in the process, enjoying the experience. A new space calls for new paintings. Here we go...check back to see what happens.
