Do these things, come to the easel, inspiration will follow.
These last painting, framing and varnishing days of March find me staying 'on task' as the teachers say, by listening to recorded books, podcasts and new music on Spotify as I paint.
The slight roughness of a new canvas weave has gotten me excited, painting geek that I am. Thank you Conroy Hudlow (http://www.conroyhudlow.com) for that suggestion. One day, I'll paint a series of interior paintings, as you also requested.
Words teased me awake early this morning, with a faint memory of a quotation promising me the door to getting the show's artist statement written. I didn't find the quote, but spent a couple of hours reading yet again, An Altar in the World by Barbara Brown Taylor. Later I take a walk in the woods with my dogs. A meditative, long yoga session tonight after working. Like the paintings, the words too will come.
The show is scheduled for April 2014 at Eastern Shore Art Center in Fairhope, 401 Oak St, Fairhope, AL 36532. http://www.esartcenter.com/. The First Friday Artwalk is April 4th, and there will be a reception that evening from 6-8 p.m. Everyone is invited!
