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.

one hot day

so I start with swimming my laps,(7:45am) and proceed to my studio where it’s like 90 degrees at 9:30am, then go to the food project this afternoon to get our weekly produce, and there it’s about 95, and then I go to ali’s swim meet and keep score at 5pm and there it’s probably 100. I love summer but this is hot. Here’s one of the pieces I worked on today. It’s about the Sudbury River and its sorry state of mercury contamination. It’s really not quite done.
