Work in progress
Lots of work in progress right now. I have a couple of really exciting mural projects coming up over the winter so am working on developing their designs. And coming up in November is a four person show at The Thoreau Center For Sustainability in San Francisco. I'm really looking forward to showing work alongside some tremendous artists and have large and small pieces in progress in the studio. I'll be posting details of the show early October.
I've also been reworking some older pieces. Sometimes an older piece just doesn't work so it might as well be the starting point for a new piece. It can be like a wild card in your creative hand too because you have to work with certain "givens" and they might send you off in some unanticipated direction. On this big 54 x 42 piece, I painted out 95% of the old painting, and just kept the wood structure, the stuck on wood house, and the armadillo. Below are a few shots of the piece evolving. I'm not sure it's finished yet, but it's reached a point where I'm happy to live with it for a while.
