studio heat 09

Painting in the studio in August is a challenge, especially when it’s around 90 degrees outside, and lots higher in the studio with no AC.  I’ve got a fan, but really, it’s not big enough for the heat some days. So my favorite thing to paint on a hot day is something cool and blue and waterlike…here’s some new abstract work that’s been coming together this summer,  oil paints with powdered pigments in medium, very experimental for me, and I’m not really sure if they’re done, or not?

Open studios

The artists at Fountain Street Studios are continuing our First Friday Studio Strolls through May. In April, the 13th Annual Fountain Street Open Studios weekend will be April 3-5. Friday from 5:30-8:30 will be the preview party, and Saturday and Sunday we’ll be open 11am-5pm. Please stop by my studio, 3rd floor east, no. 9, to see me and my work. Drop me an email if you’d like to be added to my mailing list (email and/or snail mail.) check out the list of artists at: www.fountainstreetstudios.com

Here’s a new piece I finished last month, and started on the day the stock market plunged. I decided to call it Pooring down, that’s what the day was like, that’s what the markets were doing, and the piece turned out very dark, unlike others in my Mindbug series.

so now we have 20 degree weather here in NE and my studio was so cold that I wanted some of those fingerless gloves. oh well, I started a new ink series that is really interesting and  had me excited to keep working.  I’ll post my mind(e)scape, but I’m psyched to show the new stuff at my Friday Stroll at my studio December 5??

hope to see you there.

so…also let me tell you that mindescape was a long intensive drawing to finish and not only is it a scape from mind but it was especially an escape to my mind.

studio heat

so despite the heat I have been working in my studio alot this week(fountain st studios, 3rd floor east, no. 9) and without my fan it would be miserable. I finished two paintings and a drawing this week that had been sitting there looking at me while I looked at them. they told me how to finish them so I did. I guess my work was heating up right along with the weather. Here’s this drawing, Plume,  it’s all about a cool plume of water, that I really like, part of my india ink series.
