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.

December blues

well December is upon us and for me there are always ups and downs to the holiday season. I decorated my house (but not my studio, I’d rather spend my time there working ) and here’s my December “blues”, a new piece that is a triptych (at least, I actually did five pieces in line) and it’s called filter/flow. I believe it will be a starting point for a series of larger works, and I used a new ink that has alot more color options than the classic India ink. But this piece is all blue…
thanks to all who dropped by on Friday for the open studio, it was great to see you all and I had alot of fun, hope you did too.

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.
