Horizon Lines (Twenty Four), 2009, Oil on Birch Panel, 6x12
So the last two weeks have been very productive and I am glad I decided to do a really big push to finish the bulk of the paintings now. Instead of waiting until the very last minute which is what I usually end up doing. While that can be very exhilarating, it's a bit risky too.
As of the this morning the tally is:
17 finished paintings
4 are almost finished
4 are in progress
and I still plan to do a large panel, I will prep that this weekend and work on it next week
This morning I set all the finished work out and wow how exciting it was to do that! I never had enough space in my old studio to spread paintings out and look at everything together. I always had to cross my fingers and just hope they would all work together as a group. Anyway, Doug thinks that it's a good group of paintings. He did point out a few that he thought weren't as strong, however we both agreed after recalling his track record at guessing which pieces will sell and which won't, not to remove those paintings from the show. Heh. He's a handy filter, that guy.
I plan to get a lot of time in the studio this weekend and at least make some headway with the unfinished work. But we are expecting nice weather here for the next few days so I may end up doing a little digging in the flower gardens too. Hopefully I can get time in doing both.
Four of the paintings I worked on yesterday:
This is what I will be working on today:
I don't usually post videos, but I am listening to The Band this morning and this is one of my very favorite performances in The Last Waltz. So I high tailed it over to youtube to check out Evangeline (like I haven't already seen it a million times) and thought I'd put it up here too. Have I mentioned my love for Rick Danko before? It's true, I love him. That voice, mmmmmmmmmm. So sad he's gone.......
