Here I Go

30x40

I am hoping to work on this painting tomorrow, along with another large piece from the People You Know series.

However, and I feel like I should be shouting this out VERY LOUDLY-tomorrow is also the day I officially begin the landscape paintings for a solo show that I have coming up in April at The Harrison Gallery in Williamstown, MA. This is the first time since last July that I have had an exhibition to works towards. Frankly, I am over the moon to have a real live goal again. The self imposed ones just weren't cutting it.

Time to ROCK!

Looking good!

Congrats on the show. Isn't it both fun and stressful to work towards a show?!?!

Good for you. I hope it goes very well and that you will keep us informed.

Great start on this painting, I really like the enclosure of the chair and the crossed hands and the slight twist to the body. It has a real sense of quiet struggle and introspection. The space she takes up and the background creates interesting "negative" space as well.
I wish there were another term for "negative" space, it is so often NOT negative.

Thanks Ana, I always thought I didn't really need a specific goal to really get some art made, but turns out I do...So i am glad to have one finally.

Thanks Maryanne, I might just enjoy this underpainting for a few days longer, I am already worried about how I am going to handle her face and hands.

Thanks Mary! This is gonna be good, I think.

Gary, yes, facebook=fun+procrastination
