This is the second of three pieces that I created at OX BOW.  One of my goals during the two weeks that I was there was to create three new pieces that had the same shape/form as the vestibule floor drawings that I created for the public art commission. Of course these drawings are much more intimate and have new characteristics that the large scale drawings didn’t have.  Clumps of imagery interrupt more open/fluid spaces.  Some of the more enclosed shapes have been covered with Martha Steward Glitter.  I don’t know what got into me?  Maybe I should ask Martha for some advice!!!

This is the first piece that I did at OX Bow.  It took me a week to go from working on 13′ pieces to 42″ x 24.” The imagery still comes from Pt-By-Number kits; however, I have loosened up.  I would like to create more space in the work, and not feel as if I have to fill up the space with imagery.  Ultimately, this may be my goal in upcoming work. Stay tuned

Off to OX Bow

How much stuff will I actually use.  Who knows.  Who cares.  I am driving so I can just load up the back with almost as much as I can manage.  I am even taking a long folding table.  I want to make sure that I have plenty of table top space to spread out on.

In the flurry of it all

Rushing around as usual.  I need to pack, I need to pay bills, I need to figure out what I am going to work on while at OX Bow.  How do I have time to get everything done?  I never know how, but I always manage to figure it out.

Number Three Completed.  I think that this may be my favorite one.  I like sections in each of the three compositions, but this one seduces me the most.  What does that mean?  I look at this and think “Visually Delicious”

I found a new Paint-By-Numbers Kit………..of a rose. The pinks are like cotton candy.  They add an overly sweetened quality to the composition.  Each of the three large scale drawings have their own unique personality.  I am pleased that they clearly have a relationship to each other, but I am thrilled that they stand on their own in such a bold manner.
