24" x 30"
acrylic on gallery canvas
I'm calling this piece complete and will let it sit and percolate for awhile longer to see if any additions are required. We can all seem to find ways to make additions to paintings can't we? That fine line between having a painting look good and then pushing it to ruin in a few brush strokes is tenuous and often crossed.
The painting has a name now as well - Luminous. Its quite abstract and several people who have seen it all see something different in it. Just as art should be - open to interpretation. I bought another, larger canvas yesterday. 24 x 48 is the longest that will fit across the seat in my little car. I toyed with a 60" canvas then wondered where and how I would paint it as a regular easel just wouldn't cut it, I'd need to mount it on a wall to work on it.
I've spent a lot of today clearing out my studio, cataloguing supplies and putting them in accessible places instead of scattered around the room. I also have some plans in place to create a second studio that will allow me teaching and production spaces along with more storage racks for paintings. The second studio will involve some major reconstruction, so it may not happen for awhile yet. It would be good to have that extra space where I can separate tasks and do some teaching and workshops more easily from home.
