Small Paintings and Big Dust Bunnies
Pink Fog, 2006, Oil on Panel, 18x24
Literally, the day after I finished the 48"x60" and 36"x48" panels, I began work on eight 6"x6" paintings. The whole time I was doing the underpaintings for them I was shaking my head trying to clear the visions of huge imagery. It felt a bit surreal, but the underpaintings look fine and hopefully I will have a bit more clarity when I work on them again.
I took my work down to the gallery in Hudson on Sunday. Everything went smoothly, although I realized on the drive home that my night vision is really not what it used to be. Guess I need to visit the eye doctor again. Anyway, my studio looks almost barren now. It's a strange feeling to walk though it without bumping into anything, except for the pet hair/dust bunnies which have become large and very saucy, landing right in the middle of the room instead of hiding in the corners like they usually do.
