A couple of paintings

. . . from the exhibit at the Secord Gallery that didn't get photographed. The first painting is 48" x 50" (each panel is 48" x 10"), the second is 46" x 46"



Now that my studio is almost clear of finished paintings, I've been stretching and priming more canvases so I can start new work. I've been working on a four panel piece, each panel 30" square, making a total of a five foot square painting. It's harder than I expected. I want the final piece to work as one painting, not as separate panels yet they will necessarily retain their individuality. Right now the painting is mostly red. I've tried introducing a yellow panel but the yellow keeps getting less and less. As usual, we will see what happens next . . .

Leya, I found your blog through reading Tamar's for years. I stayed because I love seeing your work and you write so well about the journey, both living and making art. Thank you for the glimpse into your life!

And I completely forgot to say what prompted me to write: Congratulations on your latest show in Europe, and your successful local show. How exciting!
