So not only am I so excited to have broken this trend this past week, but for me I am embarking on an awesome journey. I have always wanted to create canvas that curves, and as you know I have always used tape. I have now combined the two and many other two's in my life. (My left and right sides, etc.)
I am very happy to post these although the images of the work is pretty miserable but you will get an idea until the right light comes tomorrow.
I think I'm titling it 'moth' or 'moth effect.' (The lighting is best when one sees the work on the outside of a builging with natural light. There is however, a view of it from the inside as the ground is transparent.) It is roughly one meter by one meter and a blow up of one of my small figures. It is oils on contact paper!

As I posted last week, I've been accepted to the NYFA MARK program, which is this weekend.
As I understand, it's designed to help artists with other aspects of their practice - things outside the studio...I'll keep you posted.
I'm interested and curious to meet other artists from the area, and hopefully get practical advice from a different pool of non-workshoppers. It will be a first for me, and I'm open. Perhaps something magical will happen, perhaps nothing will happen. I will let you know.
Please post pictures of your paintings - I will do the same. My exhibition just ended, and I'm going now to pick up the paintings. One is going to be lent on consignment to a friend; the other two will return to my studio.
I miss you!
