Project Description

Happenings in the Studio: April 1 – 6

It has been another busy week. I have made progress on the new “Hair Nest” piece – “Hair Nest 15”. The drawing of the tree is close though still not finished – I have spent days on it this week. I have been contemplating the objects for the floor in front of the drawing. After a trip to Carroll building stone supplies I acquired 5 different types of stone and have now settled on the stone that works. Next on the agenda is planning the size of the boulders to be displayed on the floor. I’ll be constructing the boulders from various materials such as plastic, chicken wire and paper mache.

Also this week: I continue work on several pieces in the “Vessel” series. These are the rust and tea stained paintings on paper on panel and framed within a shadow box of rusted steel. The first piece was finished on Friday. This work is promised to a gallery dealer in Atlanta. And we have been in communication this past week. I just sent off an email of some new pieces to him. See one shown below.

I’m excited to get all this work moving!
