Final Touches

One week until I install my solo show! I'm putting the finishing touches on the Gray Noise series. Some of these paintings will still be wet when I hang them. Here are a few studio photos from the last few painting sessions.

Visual Inspiration and Paint Chips

One of my best students from last semester has started a blog. She has some very inspiring things on there! Check it out here:

In other news, I dismantled a few old paintings recently to reuse the stretcher bars. Moral of the story: always work fat over lean in oils. Otherwise whole layers of paint flake right off. I desperately want to make a new painting about this pile of paint bits... but that will probably have to wait until after my thesis shows. Stay tuned for exciting new paintings, coming soon! :)
