I Want More

Note re the above image: When pieces are smaller than the scanner bed, I just scan them at a high resolution, which was the case with this one. But I usually end up having to correct the colors a little bit every time. Not sure that I have the colors perfect in this picture. But they are close, very close.

Now I have only three of the small boxes left, and am working on new paintings on each one. Plus there are three more 16-inch square ones with nothing but gesso applied so far, and two more 30-inch square ones, which I’m hoping will be done to coordinate with the other 30-inch one. I’m going to order more boxes, because I want to allow for more lead time to work at a more leisurely and experimental pace.

So many ideas . . . so little time! I’m looking for more, more, more! More texture, more depth, more seductive surfaces.

Did I mention that I want more?

    Great, now I’ve got that awful “More More More, How do you like it? How do you like it?” song in my head!!!

    Lovely piece. 🙂

    So wait, let me see if I have this right… You want more? Great – because your readers and collectors and galleries no doubt all want more too. Go for it 🙂

    Sorry about that, John!!!

    Cath, it’s always only a question of carving out enough time to focus, focus, focus!

    That’s what I want more of – TIME, TIME, TIME. Blogging and writing the book (and working) have taken some much time lately I have spent no time at my easel at all. But the weather is going to be nasty this weekend and I have promised myself two days alone with my paints.

    We’ll see.
