New waves in the studio

As you know I’ve been working on a lot of new things this fall.  It all began with “the wall” but I also ended up experimenting with some new themes in my work.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m still a fan of maps.  But – I inherited about 40 years worth of magazines that haveContinue reading “New waves in the studio”

The wall and chitta vritti

It’s been one of those weeks where I have been completely distracted in general.  I can’t seem to focus on one thing at a time.  I start doing something, and then my mind leads me elsewhere.  I guess that is one of the reasons I’ve been back at making script patterns again.  It’s like meditation. Continue reading “The wall and chitta vritti”

When I moved back to the east coast, it was still starting at me. It said,” I’m blank, do something with me!”. SoContinue reading “Revisiting: Floating Squares”

Revisiting: Gridded Squares

Ok, so this painting is not really at all what I usually do, but i thought it would be a good one to go to next because the last one contained a few boxes with lots of writing. I like squares/boxes/windows/passages (whatever you would like to see them as). For the purpose of this one,Continue reading “Revisiting: Gridded Squares”
