I’m working on a lot of paintings this month and in the next couple of months and thought I would share with you my current progress. I have two upcoming group shows in November and a couple overdue paintings I’m trying to finish at the same time. This month I want to finish 6 mini paintings for a show called “In The Round” at Graven Feather, a gallery at Queen West, Toronto.

20130917-181814.jpgI took a bunch of photos of a friend of mine, did a million composition studies of said photos and these were the winners. Why circles? Who knows, I’m just working with what the gallery gave me, six pieces of board, 4 inches in diameter.

Here is 1 of 6 fully painted and ready to go…probably. I’m still working on the other five and hope to have them done by the end of this month. Next month I have another slew of paintings to do! Woot! *passes out from exhaustion*

Expect to see finals of these and my upcoming paintings closer to my show openings in November.

This means my roommate and I haven’t been able to clean the floors or unpack any of our stuff including my studio. So I’m painting on a garbage bag taped to my kitchen table. I’m just that hard core?

As a painter and artist I find it hard sometimes to not take my work too seriously, so I created this blog! I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I do. In the mean time, if you are curious as to what else I draw, check out my online portfolio, http://jessicacaissie.com/
