    Pretty nice for such a big jump in size! I had to very gradually work up to that size and still feel a bit nervous about what kind of image to put on a such a large panel.

    What’s the grant for?

    Hey Tracy, thanks. I kind of approached it as a scaling exercise: using proportionally larger brushes, could I make a painting with roughly as many brushstrokes as in the dimensions I’m accustomed to? I certainly wasn’t counting strokes, but I do know that I did it in roughly the same time as the 8×10 I’d done of the same location last week.

    The grant thing… yeah… it’s a joking reference to the MacArthur Foundation Genius Grants. I’m still waiting; they apparently didn’t know they were supposed to give me one this year 😉
