9 more things…

Monday, August 18th, 2008

I’ve decided the list of 10 things in my studio should be reduced to 9… as I’m a visual person and 9 pics makes a nice satisfying block on the page while 10 leaves an image hanging… which I find aesthetically displeasing. I’ve also decided that as a novice blogger I was perhaps a bit too ambitious when I committed to doing these lists every week… so I’m going to shoot for a much more realistic once a month with other art related posts peppered throughout the month.

So here we go, 9 more glimpses into my studio:

1. part one of an encaustic triptych study

2. collection of hand cut linoleum and rubber blocks used in past paintings

3. hand marbled piece of fabric. practice piece.

4. art books and artist’s reference… including one of my favorites “Hockney on Art” by Joyce…

5. the GEM pencil sharpener. lovely.

6. contact sheet depicting large cement boat anchors I found by the harbor. inspiration.

7. nifty old green tv. very small. b/w. shows snow on every channel! looks cute.

8. old stereo-view card. classic.

9. rubber gloves. safety first!

in the thick of it…

I’ve been a bit behind on the blog posts (just a bit :) ) but only because I’m hard at work in the studio preparing for an upcoming two person show at Chandler Fine Art in SF. Here’s a glimpse of what I’ve got going on… a detail of a work in progress…
