Another day of cold temps in the St.G, but I braved the freezing cold rain and darkness to finish the collage.  I'm pretty happy with the final piece.  I haven't cropped it yet in real life, cause I'm not sure how much space I wanna leave above the figure.  I'm torn on a title as well, before I was going with Shattered, but now I'm leaning toward something more about feeling boxed in, I don't know, maybe inspiration will strike and the perfect title will come to me.

So, it's 40 degrees here in St. George and what am I doing? I'm out in my studio/garage in christmas pjs, flip flops and a beanie working on a new collage :)  I'm sure if anyone were watching I look like I've lost my mind.  I only lasted about an hour and a half then I couldn't feel my toes any longer.  I also finished two other paintings, i'm feeling very accomplished and numb.

Just trying something new.  I covered an ugly, old painting and then sketched with watersoluable graphite.  Pretty fun, the texture ate my graphite pretty quick, but I was happy with the final piece.

Fun Again

So I finally spent some time in the studio, good news is I have quite a few paintings going at once so maybe I won't get stuck on just one (now I'll get stuck on multiple paintings at once :)) This one has been my favorite one to work on.  It is different from my usual stuff and i'm liking that.  So I've had this canvas 3'x4' just sitting around the studio for MONTHS, I hadn't used it because I gessoed it in the summer and the heat made it dry so fast it had huge cracks in it. I had to find some way to use it and incorporate the cracked gesso, so i added tons of texture to it, I should take a close up so you can see it, but anyway, it has been fun to play in different media and see if I can make it work.  I'm working on a bunch of paintings for a friend, but I have no idea what her tastes are in paintings.  I guess I'll find out soon enough :)
