Acrylic and Oil on Found Wood
48" x 20"
Paintings paintings paintings! The studio truly is spilling over with paint brushes, rags and leaning artworks against every available wall. It is the one week countdown to show time and I'm feeling the familiar cocktail of pre-show inspiration, excitement and panic. Why is that the Muse FLOODS me with new ideas one week before the show? Why is it that I always must work myself into a frenzy in the days leading? Will I ever be an organized enough artist to actually hang artwork that is fully dry for a show?
Hope springs eternal each and every time - I always tell myself it will be different. Ha!
It's all in good fun though. I love my work and I love that I'm still sorting through my process.
And I just took a major leap of faith because of it.
For my next show in December (La Familia's 5x5 show) I will be working on reclaimed wood assembled by another artist. Check out these beauties:
I cannot wait to get my order from him. All of the materials for these panels have been reclaimed from local construction & demo sites. Someday I would love to be able to make my own but for now I think I'll leave the woodworking to the expert! At least for shows where the requirement is a uniform size...
