Getting ready to head down to Florida. I figured today was the last day to make painting touch-ups so that they will be dry enough to pack up at the end of the week.
My friend Michael snapped this off-kilter shot of me working on "Eden's Gaze" - it shows how topsy turvy things are packing up!

Here's a little 12" x 12" on which I've been working. I'm not accustomed to working this small, its a good exercise.
Also got good news! The painting I entered in the Art From the Heart show (in my last two blog entries) won an Award of Excellence and sold - Yay!
The past couple of weeks I've been madly trying to finish up work for my trip to Florida for a couple shows. I also plan to camp at Kissimmee Prairie and will work on some plein air paintings there.

It feels good to be in the studio doing my own projects after a series of commissions. I've been experimenting with fluid drippy paint, works on paper and faces (of course). I've also been sketching each evening - just quick drawings of faces out of my head or from an image that flashes by on the TV. I decided to work up one of them, and I've been keeping it monochromatic and using watercolor pencils and acrylics and modeling paste, so it almost looks like marble. Trying to decide whether to keep in in this monochromatic "grisaille" form, or glaze it with color... stay tuned...
