This Week’s Roundup
I hope your weekend is off to a great start!
I have some exciting progress to share with you. This week I completed two paintings, started another, and began a project of documenting the creation of a painting in video. Here are the highlights for the week:
Last week a collector sent me a note saying he thought the painting he purchased from me several years ago was still my best work. That touched me, so I featured it on my blog as Monday’s “Painting for You“. Monday I also finished the set of commissioned marbles paintings I’ve been sharing with you.
Tuesday I completed the piece shown above, and presented it – still on the easel – in a short video.
On Wednesday I offered you a painting from 2013 which has an active backdrop, and I wrote a little about ways in which a background contributes to the overall action.
Thursday’s post presented a tiny work from 5 years ago, and I talked about the effect of scale on appreciating images of paintings. I also began an exciting new project: I’m going to document making a painting on video for you, start to finish… and here is how it begins. My always helpful studio assistant Ozzy makes a cameo appearance.
On Friday I showed you a small teacup painting, and talked about the rhythm of producing work in a busy studio.
Thanks for checking these out – I truly appreciate your time. And with that, I want to wish you a great week ahead!
