This time next year. Who knows where or what I’ll be doing, but there will be blue sky and sunshine!

Kitchen table studio


It’s been too long since I’ve put brush to canvas.

This morning, I got out my paints, some paper to cover the table, a drop sheet for the floor, and an unused canvas.

I hammered wedges into the corners of the canvas to remove the slack. I mixed paint with water in a small jar. I brushed on the first coat with the canvas resting on two wooden slats.

On Kawara would make his date paintings in a day. If a painting were unfinished that day, he’d destroy it. As much as I’d like to complete this one in a day, it will take at least a couple of days.

It’s good to be painting again.

Painterly Collages

Ripping the magazine, the torn paper becomes a daub of paint, and I feel a sense of freedom. As my confidence grows in using this medium, I enjoy how the colleges are becoming more painterly and the structures increasingly complex.
