Dear Friends,
July 9, 2015

Its super “hot” in the studio. “Hot” meaning I blew the electrical breaker about an hour ago and have resorted to letting the hot air inside to fan air around.

Here’s today’s progress so far….

I like the bright bold colours and blobs of paint here and there; they make a nice mark and catch the light. I’ve added a few marks and square shapes to some of my new series on Trees. They are interesting in the fact that since I added them, I simply have no concept of what I can do with them. I obsessively paint them over and over again, making each mark and edge brighter and brighter.

“When end in doubt, make the painting brighter than you think” I heard this in a workshop one time and it keeps running in my mind, so you can see it’s reflected in my current work.

I do hope you have a great weekend and happy painting to whomever is crazy enough like me and painting in 30 degree plus weather!
