This painting is called Slate
, and is 56"x24", oil on panel. It is one that I'll be taking to Circa Gallery
in Minneapolis on Wednesday. I go back over ten years with Circa, and think of it as my "home" gallery. It's time for a big overhaul of my work there--I'm taking in about seven new paintings, and bringing about the same number of older pieces.
The past few weeks have been confusing for me...lots of work in the studio, and all of it is heading here or there. So I've been sorting that out, and at the same time I'm doing new work, and also at the same time getting ready for my workshop next week in Rochester. And tomorrow I'm shipping off three boxes of small paintings that my friend Pamela is going to hang in the gallery she has in her house in Ithaca. I'm thinking, some day it will all get quiet again, and I can just paint in peace. But I do look at all of this in a positive light. Things are happening and I can't complain.
