I have a lot of paintings in progress right now but not many that are actually finished, bolted together and photographed. In fact, these two Column paintings are all for now. They are each 69"x12", so quite a a bit shorter than the rest of the paintings in my ongoing Column
series. This may be the start of a new series, as I have two more in progress that are of similar dimensions.
It's been a very busy week in the studio...I've been spending a couple of hours more per day there than is my usual habit. And I've had several paintings come together very nicely, at least one more that I'll probably just hide away for now, and a number of 'starts" that look promising.
Orderliness and general tidiness (never my strong points) have gone by the wayside. It is a big mess in the studio, which is OK for me--but I'm having a class of high school kids visit this week on Wednesday, so maybe I should try for a little straightening up. On the other hand shouldn't they get to experience typical, normal chaos? It would give them a more realistic idea of studio life (mine at least). Ah, rationalization. I'd rather paint than clean.
