I haven’t posted in a while. I’m busy making stuff.

More photos of paint that I’m collecting and using because I like looking at it.
Ayep. Maybe I’ll post some more later.
Here’s a closeup of another sculpture. Again, I’m being stingy with my art. I would apologize, but it won’t change anything. I still feel a need to keep this mostly to myself. But the detail pic is kinda pretty at least, isn’t it? It’s pretty or gross I suppose, depending on your perspective. In the interest of pretending to be generous, I will post a couple more photos after the jump. Read more »
Couple more pics + Marnie Stern after the break.

Remember a couple of weeks back when I said I thought I’d finished something and I might be posting photos of it when it finally dried? Well here it is.
acrylic and mixed media on 3/4 inch board
17 x 10 inches
and it measures about 3 inches at the deepest part
I had a bitch of a time getting a decent photo of it. This was the best I could do. It’s not quite accurate in terms of color and value, and I think it’s a little hard to read spatially. There are lots of thick, glossy transparent layers–hard stuff to photograph. I’ll add detail shots after the jump to give a better idea what it looks like in real life. Reproduction issues aside, this is representative of the direction I’m heading in now. Any and all comments welcome and appreciated, even hating. Read more »
I may have finished something. Maybe. It’s not dry though so I can’t show you yet. I’m working on a few paintings that are functioning as sketches to try and find footing in a newish direction. The more I think about it and the longer I work on this new stuff, the more I find direct and not so direct references to the rest of my work. These links are starting to make more sense to me now which makes me feel more confident in what I’m doing. That translates to me feeling more excited about working. I like this part of the process–the part where I’m still figuring out what the big problems I’m setting up for myself are and what possible ways there are to solve them. As fun as this is for me, I realize it’s prolly pretty damn boring for you. Images are generally the most interesting part of a personal art blog. With that in mind, I’m posting a bunch of photos of details of my studio for you to look at. These are things I look at everyday that stay with me because there is something about them I find interesting.
I’ve had the old paint sign above since the mid nineties when I worked in a gem of an old art store that also sold paint and wallpaper. The store was located in a historic old theater building in Western Massachusetts. The art store has since moved and the theater has been restored. It took years for the restoration to gain enough support to get underway. When I worked there, Hilary Clinton came and gave a speech as part of her campaign to preserve America’s historic architectural treasures. I should dig out the funny photo of me and the rest of the staff posing with Hilary. That was a fun day! In person, Hilary was friendly, engaging, very pretty and VERY short. I remember thinking she was a great public speaker–better than her husband.

Above are some detail shots from a few of the things I’m working on right now. I’ve been spending a good deal of time looking at images of food and other stuff with physical properties that induce some sort of something in me that probably adds up to more than would make sense if I tried to explain it in words right now so I won’t try. I have a slideshow of mostly food related photos I play in a loop while I’m painting, and foodgawker.com is fast becoming a favorite destination. As an unexpected perk of this image sourcing, I’ve discovered a few wonderful recipes. This tomato sauce/soup is probably my favorite so far. It makes a perfect sauce for so many meals! Hope you’re all happy and well fed this weekend.
Well sure, of course I’ve been painting, but I don’t have any finished work to show you at the moment. So instead here are some detail shots of WIPs. Painting details are always fun, right? *all pics click to enlarge* more pics after the jump Read more »
