Now the Magician has a leg to stand on she’s beginning to seem more substantial. I still enjoying working on the stripes, building depth out of making slender lines toward the edges of the legs, and relishing the rippling when the lines cross folds in the fabric. It’s challenging, but rewarding. Other demands on my time are making it difficult to get into the studio, so I’m trying to set aside painting time as a time-tabled event that MUST happen, or I’d be unable to paint anything at all.
Bela Bacsi’s show opens tomorrow at the Kwan Fong Gallery at CLU. I’m looking forward to the reception very much. The gallery looks fantastic thanks to the help of Mike Adams and Carey who put together some really outstanding graphics work, and Gary and Armando who installed some spotlight track when it was clear that we would not be able to light the sculpture adequately with the existing track. Thank you!
