Trepidation and Joy

Here’s a sight to simultaneously inspire trepidation and joy in the heart of any artist. A freshly swept and mopped studio with four eight feet by eight feet panels laid out along the wall waiting to have canvas stretched on them. I’ll come up with the fabric in the next few days, stretch them, gesso them and get started. Angels and Demons emerging from light and darkness is the theme of this summer project, working with the idea of duality as a trinity; within every duality lies the relationship between the two opposites, the grey area within which one can find a mixture of both sides of the pairing.

I’m not stopping work on the tarot project, they’ll be moving along beside these huge panels as light relief.

    I say just forget the canvas and make a long wooden panel of awesomeness
