Wow. March already. Needless to say I don’t have much in the way of artwork to show. From mid December until now, my family has had several ups and downs. The lows were very low…the highs are unimaginably high. I’ve attempted to paint, but nothing is working. My mind has been elsewhere, and I can’t stay in the studio for more than a few minutes at a time.
Whenever I’m in a creative lull, I get back into the “construction” aspect of my work: Building panels, prepping frames or doing housekeeping in the studio. A couple days/weeks of that type of work can be very satisfying because no matter how it goes, I end up with something to show for my time.
I dreamt last night that I was painting work that I was proud of, in both quality and quantity. New stuff is coming. Hopefully better than ever.
