Birds of a Feather

ihet september 2017 issue 229

Ribbons of card stock and beet remnants on a paper towel. A consideration born of idle hands and fiddling what’s in reach. Patterns on the towel, the partitioning of the beets and their stains, a modest diversion from monochrome now carrying over into paint.

The back and forth, muted ethereal to bright and strong, the question . . . return to muted?  At the moment I’m staying on the brighter stronger side .

Objects of desire. An assemblage. An intimate vignette all in on bright. The backdrop is from the garden, a loose pile of Bougainvillea petals digitally captured and mounted. A wood block, pieces of steel, and the five ball. Monument Five – Memorial to a Prime.

Meanwhile, back in the studio, the middle of a long beginning. The outline of future endeavors with plenty of room to move.

Just Like Swimming

#224 – March 2017

Feeling the motion minus the progress, so put down the brushes and taking a different tack.  I’m a patient painter and moving forward often requires a few steps sideways. It’s going where the fun takes me, and for now, I’m in the woods, delving into collected odd lots, piecing things together.

Long Shores. Meddling Beasts.

#221 – December 2016

Once started, eventually it all stops. So it goes with twenty sixteen. In homage to the time remaining, a collection of images from the year’s Tuesdays, in no particular order.
