Backbone

I’ve been so busy with the gallery that it’s been hard to get into the studio until today. At last I found a few hours this evening to work on fixing the spine, which had been bothering me for a long time. Now it has some highlights and some tighter definition that sets it forward from the feathery background. I also worked on highlights on the ribs, using the Ceramic White that Steve Aufhauser asked me to try. I really like this white – it’s got such a bright high end when you lay it down thick, and a lovely glaze like that of Zinc when it’s thin. Very nice.

If you’re anywhere near Thousand Oaks, California this month, do yourself a favor and swing by the Kwan Fong Gallery at CLU to have a visual feast at the exhibit of Mia Tavonatti’s “Paintings from Svelata”. Really lovely romantic paintings of a beautiful woman suspended in water and fabric. Opening reception this Saturday night at 7pm.
