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.
I 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.
Also I’m working on these on the smallest surface. I just moved into my new apartment two weeks ago and as of yesterday it has just finished being painted. 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?
