some stuff I'm working on...

Did I mention I'd been in an 'abstract' mood?

The final days of pure, wide open summer are upon me-- I start teaching Tuesday evening, and all the Saturdays from here til Open Studios (mid-October). Which is okay. I've had a busy summer, with travels and social stuff-- though not quite as productive in the studio as I'd hope. It seems that for artists (me, at least), there's always that need to try to balance structure with un-structured time, avoiding an excess of either. By the end of summer, the structure of part-time teaching seems like just the right amount.

Good-bye, Elizabeth

We were out of town for a couple days-- and today I see news that Elizabeth Murray died. Tony & I had seen her recently in a short interview (part of Art21, which we got via Netflix) and Tony had recently taken to quoting her from that. Primarily her saying, 'you always think its gonna get easier, but it never does' (painting). I paraphrase.
For more about her, click here.
There are videos of her speaking about art on this site for teachers. (once you click past some the the intro stuff, there are a lot of additional features)

shades of green

Sorry, dear readers, I have become a Very Occassional Blogger. Perhaps its just a summer thing. I was in Minnesota/Wisconsin for a week for a grand family reunion, celebrating the 90th birthday of my grandmother, also, my mom's birthday, and my nephew Andrew's graduation from high school. Let me tell you, those mid-westerners know how to party!

So, here's the studio today. The larger painting I started-- maybe a month ago, just getting been back in to it. The smaller striped ones, started yesterday.
