Long delay in processing recent work....I completed several small sketches/paintings for my October show at Deblois, based on my regular walks "around the reservoir". I decided that since that was what I was looking at the most, that is what I would paint last summer. I focused on developing my glazing techniques, and creating vivid color combos at dawn, noon and sunset in July. I did some quick paintings with birds, swallows, geese, egrets zooming around. These are not literal depictions, but silhouettes that I hope to turn in to marks and gestures as my literal spaces become more abstract and organic. That is what I am working on now.
