Mapping the visual world through a nebulous lens. Varying degrees of tangibility and culpability.

Step by Step

It was hot in the city today. Even with the air on my studio never seemed to cool down to a comfortable level. But much better than the community areas of the building without air. I finished up the last of the small 12x12 canvases that I had been working on and started to work in layers to the three 18x18's that I had added the first layer of texture to on Saturday. I still have three larger works in progress and add to each of them every time I go to the studio. I am about half way finished with all of them and will likely have them on the wall by the next art walk.

I started adding some additional images of the available artworks to the website. Interior shots of rooms with my art on the walls. It is a good way to evaluate the art in a space as well as the size.

I really like how Caeruleus looks on this wall. It has a Southwest vibe as does the artwork. I wish I could convey the way the light hits this painting. It has a luminous quality that I just love, and the blues and greens are just amazing.

Little Yellow: I went out with a bang on those small landscapes. This one was the lone stranger, tucked away in the corner of the room waiting to be finished. I am not usually this all over with the bold color but this was fun to finish and I really hope someone sees the amazing things going on here. That textural under painting of sky blue really pops, pulling the entire piece together. I hesitated to add any more of the darker blue and opted instead to add the cadmium red impasto at the last minute. I love how this happens sometimes with a piece. and it really is why I love spontaneous gestural decisions.
