Much continues with my current series of Viriditas paintings.
I’m continuing to work on them and get them ready to show. Although at this point it is a long process of refinement, re-evaluation, and adjustment.
Part of my process now is simply taking snapshots of the work. Seeing how it looks from different angles at different times. I will snap a few shots on my phone in the morning when I arrive at my studio, and then a few before I leave. I like letting the pictures sit on my phone in my pocket, and then when I have a spare moment, when my thoughts are completely elsewhere, I can pull them out and see where the paintings are. Its a kind of living with them.
Sometimes you have a certain set of eyes, and sometimes you have completely different eyes. Each a reflection of mood and thought process. I keep imagining that when all those eyes and thoughts get together and meet, I will truly have something that moves and lives.
I’m waiting for it. And I am waiting for the possibilities it will bring.
