February: I'm back!

It's good to be back in the studio.  Like most folks, life gets busy.  Holidays, birthdays, kids, life.  Between last September (has it been that long since my last blog post?) and now, life has been non-stop.  On a great note, my studio got a terrific upgrade. I have heat! And lights!  And insulation! And freshly painted drywall on which to hang paintings! I'm truly excited.  

It took a few months for the studio renovation to happen, and I have to admit that not much painting got done.  I had to move completely out of my studio and stick everything out in the garage.  

For a while my studio looked like this:

 I love my renovated space.  And now, I'm happy to get back to work. 

New Year, New Work

January is often a time for new goals and looking ahead.  I am not an exception to this.  I do, however, tend to keep my goals and plans for paintings on the quiet side.  For me, talking about my intentions and inspiration for upcoming paintings has the effect of deflating the energy and momentum behind it.  I'd rather keep my ideas brewing, just between me and my sketchbook.  I want the work to be as exciting and fresh for you as it was for me in dreaming it up. 

That said, I'm excited about the new year in art-making.  I've been busy in the studio and have prepped, primed and sanded at least 40+ canvases and panels.  Time to get to work!

And currently in the studio... one of a few works in progress.... 

Stay tuned!
