Things are going well and I am really enjoying working with paint again. I think I mentioned it before, but I am very aware that some of the things I am doing with paint this time around couldn't have happened with out my two year love affair with pastel. No new finished paintings to report but below are a few shots of my studio as it stands.
When I came back from Hambidge I overhauled my studio trying to get it up to par with what I had in the Fischer Studio. It's not quite as clean, and no where near as huge, but taking these photos tonight made me realize how much I really do love my space. I'm lucky to have a studio that allows me to work (somewhat) large and to "spread out" as they say -- and I'm okay with not having a living room. I'm very excited about the painting I'm working on which you can see in the first image. Being at Hambidge gave me the time, solitude and confidence I needed to really explore and push through to new places in my work, I am happy to say that this has continued since my return and the reason I think I am so excited to get in the studio every night after work.
The view from my studio stoop, it's even better at sunset.
So that's that for now my friends. I'll be back, and thanks for reading!
