A Few of My Favorite Things

September 14, 2017

As you probably already know, this is one of my favorite things ever:

My order this time was for eight boxes. If you zoom in, you can see a slightly textural application of gesso. I can’t wait to see what happens with each one of them. They each progress in their own individual ways. Now that I have a new gallery, I want to stay ahead of demand. It’s not the best situation to have to create on a deadline.

Another one of my favorite things — My gelli plate — is visible on the table in the background, as is a little stack of papers for depositing excess paint from rollers and brushes. Those eventually become collage papers. I sometimes use the gelli plate just as a surface for rolling out color onto a brayer and then onto a painting. And sometimes is use it as a big stamp. The picture below is of a big sheet of paper onto which I stamped many different impressions from the gelli plate. It was kind of fun, but has long since been cut up and used as collage papers.

36 x 60″ sheet of paper

Here are three new boxes I finished 2 weeks ago. All are 8×8 inches, like the ones in the picture.

Elements 19, acrylic on cradled panel, 8x8x2 inches

Elements 20, acrylic on cradled panel, 8x8x2 inches

Elements 21, acrylic on cradled panel, 8x8x2 inches

I’ll update you when the rest of the fun begins.

    Wis,h I was there to watch you play. Where did you get paper 36 x 60?

      It was just some bond paper from a roll intended for a large format printer. An engineering firm closed up shop in Florida — one I used to work for — and I got a couple of partial rolls of paper.
