Well, I'm back! Finally getting some of my other projects caught up so I can get back in the studio. I spent most of today working on an artist statement that will explain a new series of paintings. It's amazing how much you can learn about yourself and your work when you really take time to think about the how, what, and why to making art. Now that I'm more confident in explaining my work I think that will make it more meaningful to others. I've also learned that to make my best, I need to make it for myself, not for the masses.
Look for some new things in the next month or so. I'll continue the wax (encaustic) paintings, but the compositions will be getting more complicated. Plus, I'm working on creating a large painting in a public space, so people can drop by and see me working. I might even have a live web feed for my out of town fans. Maybe that will help get better at blogging more regularly:-)
Thank you for all your comments and emails!
See you soon,
