The part object

Beginning a new artist zine called "The Part Object."  A drawing of this birthday banner will make its way in eventually.

My book of possible painting titles

I've been keeping these book for a couple years now--an attempt to gather the phrases I encounter which seem destined to become a painting.

Little Paintings

Two little paintings--each 8"x8" and acrylic and fabric on canvas.

Soon, Italy

As I finally finished this painting that has been dogging me since mid-Spring, I can shut the studio down and prepare for a month in Italy--Florence mostly, but also Rome and Siena.  It is such good timing, as I feel as though the work is need of new forms, new shapes, new configurations.  So I will draw and draw and draw, and collage and collage and collage, and look and look and look--taking in the newness of a foreign place with much relish!

Stuffed painting

This painting has become overly packed over the course of the week.  I am waffling between keeping the painting intact and letting it be (and not looking at for awhile as I really feel like I cannot see this one), or cutting it into all its many shapes and using these cut-out-parts as the basis for a new painting....a bigger one where I can spread them apart, give them air, and better see what I have in front of me.  I really like the idea of making a new painting with the remnants of this one.

These three photographs are the sections I like.  But they do get buried in the cross-purposes of the overall image.  Ugh.
