An over due update

The wall has been going through some changes these last few weeks.  There’s been some problem solving, much needed breaks, and some breakthroughs.  I’m really having fun with this project and the idea has taken on a different kind of significance and study.  I feel like it’s moving forward.

So with the much needed breaks I’ve also been working on a few other paintings to keep it interesting.  I’ve ordered more wood to keep going on a series of smaller abstractions and of course wood panels.

The collage work, it’s never ending, but so worth the effort.

I need breaks, so I’m working on a couple of others.  This is one is one masonite board, and has a super slick surface.

Oh, and I’m working on some origami paper, using maps as a guide to make the lines on the paper.

Folding them into cranes.  This has been a long process, but I finally found the right paper and the right ink.

Back to making origami paper.

Sometimes you need a walk in the woods to reset.  And I still can’t get away from the impressions of nature.

This is how it looked earlier in the week, you can see the small red piece in the foreground.

Decided to add lines.  It’s going to take some time, but I’m happy with it so far.

More shifting, more color, more lines.  Nowhere near completion.
