Mostly Yellow, 2007, Oil on Panel, 8x10
Progress is being made on several fronts around here lately.
Up until yesterday and today (more snow!), the pavement on the roads was visible and the snow was beginning to melt, creating the most impressive icicles. So just a few inches closer to spring, but I'll take it.
Doug ran into the the owner of Multiple Impressions (the NY gallery that is trying me out) last Friday and she told him that she had just sold two of the three paintings that I had sent her. Very good progress there.
And in the studio I am feeling really excited about painting again. Despite painting at a snail's pace in February, I am very pleased with the quality of those pieces. After working at such a feverish pace for so many months last year, it has been quite an adjustment to slow down and look at everything in a different way. I had gotten to the point of feeling that I had to be crazy busy working towards a deadline in order to do strong work and I am very happy to find out that working slowly is effective as well. That is the best progress.
