Summer Slowly Approaches
I am moving studios. Little painting is getting accomplished but ideas continually swirl. Before I began the studio switch I finished quite a number of paintings on paper. There isn't a ton of paint on them but there is vibration and color. Appreciation is one thing but mimicking is another. Of course there are always influences but to integrate them into a natural way of working is key. I think with these paper paintings I have hit on something. They are interesting and my own. They must stand for themselves because they are a bit different than my hero's paintings and so they can't use those as a crutch. I think that is why they are on paper honestly. I need to make the leap to canvas (I did one). I will post some of the paper paintings soon and hopefully paintings on canvas won't be far behind.
