It's coming along. I've definitely decided that my next painting will be a more manageable size though. The hours are really adding up on this one, which is fine, but I need some new paintings in the studio to inspire me and help me to chart out exactly I want my 2011 body of work to be. I've got lots of ideas. Color, as always will be one of my main focuses along with evoking certain emotions from the viewer. I want to make the paintings hard to ignore. I usually lean on color to achieve this but I would like to make the paintings connect with the viewer in a deeper way this time too. Well, maybe I should have shared that after they were painted rather than before I even take on this task! I guess I am feeling more comfortable with bringing you all along with me through my successes and failures. It is what it is - really. Me.
