I decided to bite the bullet and join up for the Denver County Fair-It sounds like it will be fun if anything. I am going to do some photo/encaustic pieces from some of the pics we took in Italy.
I am getting ready to hand my new show down at CORE. It opens tomorrow, so I am a bit behind the power curve! It will be open from May 26-June 12.
I don’t know if this will work-but here is a large in-process painting I uploaded onto twitter. http://twitpic.com/4dm9j5
I hate that part of painting when you are 3/4 of the way done with something, and that last quarter is where all the fire is. So much easier when it is in the beginning, as with all things.
I am currently trying to finish a grant for the small, non-profit gallery I belong to. I had it halfway done a month ago, went to save it, and the form completely ate it. I have been trying ever since to get a version of the form that works correctly on my somewhat newer Mac. I just got this one Friday, and I have been madly filling out all of our info and hoping it works, as it has to be in and friggin’ perfect on Monday, yup, this Monday.
I just moved my show up from August/September to May/June, while still holding on to the Annex for August Sept. I currently have 6 paintings in various stages, and I think I will also do a number of encaustic drawings for this, as well as my ‘burial’. I need to get a few more buckets of red dirt to fix it up and make it smoother when I install it.
I have been working on a few new panels of late. I am going with a more modern death theme, with a view of an autopsy/embalming room, stacked caskets, crematorium. I think they are progressing nicely. Have a cute kitteh.
