I’ve been taking care of administrative work this last couple of days, in a rare fit of wanting to keep out of the studio for a couple of days after the intense work that went into getting the installations into the Brand Gallery in Glendale and the Hillcrest in Thousand Oaks. I feel very confident right now, having so much work out in public filling a lot of exhibit space – I’m looking for ever larger galleries to take the shows and ready to make increasingly large work. It’s an exciting time. Missed the newspaper coverage for this show, and I’ll need to work harder at getting publicity materials out next time. Now that there’s enough good quality work to show without feeling quite as intense pressure to show new material every single time I should be able to be more effective at this.Â
I’m back in the studio this evening for an unusual open Thursday evening, so I’ve been putting things back in order after the studio floor’s thorough cleaning today and yesterday. It’s so nice to have the place clean, it gets incredibly dirty throughout the year because cleaning it properly is almost impossible with so much stuff in the space. I’m starting on the next tarot card, figuring out proportions and composition, nothing fit for blogology yet. I also have those eight by eight pieces in my mind, so I’ll sketch the evening away.
I’ve been talking to Sean about shooting pictures on Saturday for his role in the cards paintings, looks like we’ll be getting together in the afternoon.
