Slow, Steady Progress
I’m working at the art of gardening as well as creating work in the studio. Paintings for the Florida gallery are still my main focus in the studio — that is, when I can get myself in there to spend some quality time. In between rainy spells, I’ve been getting out to the garden to continue the prepping and weeding and cleaning and planting. And that’s saying nothing of the harvesting and preparation of several things that have wintered over, like greens and beets, which are labor intensive.
These rainy spring days provide studio time and a break from garden chores. The above painting is another one of 16 that I’ve sent to the gallery to date. I have several more in progress, which get some paint added, and then I wait for that to dry, and then wait for some inspiration for further direction. It’s a long slow process, but one that fits in well with my lifestyle. Nothing urgent or forced. Just slow, steady progress.
Note: The blue you see on the sides of these boxes is painter’s tape. I’ve decided I want to leave the natural wood on these, so I’ll protect them until the paintings are finished.
