This is a detail from a nearly done painting. I had started it some time ago but had to put it aside while I finished the work for my recent exhibit at the CAC. Now I am trying to get it done along with a few other pieces. I also have some new work just getting underway but not quite ready for sharing!
Trying to get back to work after the creative push to do the two person show has been a challenge. Pushing thru so much new work in five weeks proved to be a real creative drain! Also trying to choose the next direction to take with new work, so I am dealing with bits and pieces of smaller works, paper prep and palette cleaning and will see where it takes me.
All the children returned home this morning as we deinstalled the exhibit at the CAC Gallery. It was a great experience and I hope to find other spaces to show some of this work soon. And I am inspired to move forward with interesting new work! Thanks again to all that visited the exhibit.
I spent some time today at the gallery documenting and journaling some thoughts about the show and my work. Exhibit is up for two more days and has to come down by late morning Wednesday. Looking at it all for a while helped me to gain some insight and perspective on my work, especially after receiving input from others. This will help me as I move on with new work in the next few months. These two paintings, Sky Squared and Purple Haze, are two of the most recently completed works in the show.
