Okay, super short one.
I published a book the other day. You haven’t read it yet. Only one person has, and it’s changed a tiny bit since she did, so belive me, none of you know this one. And I have another act coming in about a month, and I’m hoping to have the third done for Christmas.
I’m starting to noodle with STEEP INCLINATIONS again. Can’t recall if I’ve done a page here or not fo rit. Probably not. Soon.
I’m going to do a major abstract expression piece. I think I’m ready, and I’m thinking it will be sort of the spiritual grandchild of Neo, the little black and white painting I sold last month.
I’m thinking about how I can do it without really falling far short of the glory, and without overdoing it, as well. It was and is an important piece to me, but it’s found a nice new home, and I’m thinking it’s time to see what I can do with the basic concept in 2014. I already have the board selected and prepped. It’s going to be on wood this time; no more art board curling up and needing to be glued down to wood after the fact. I’d do it on canvas, but I think that even relatively tight canvas will have too much bounce for what I’m trying to do. My techniques reward a really stiff surface best.
Okay, I said super short, and I meant it. So have a great weekend, and if you want something interesting to read, go buy my new book. Or, you know, go buy one of my prints. Honest to goodness, this stuff is great work. It’ll be worth something someday. I just hope it happens before I die. That would be depressing.
Thanks for reading.
