Since I’ll be spending more time in DC, and I have to paint for two upcoming shows, I turned the apartment into a makeshift studio.
The natural light, ceiling height
and wall space in the apartment are excellent, although I can’t work on
too many things at once unless I spread out into the rest of the
place–which is often the case. In my new work
, I”m thinking about the monumental sculpture I saw recently at the National Gallery’s Sculpture Garden
I just started three 60 x 72 inch unstretched canvases. Working with acrylic pigments and binders, I can work on small sections of the paintings on the tabletop. I’m alsoworking on a stack of canvasboard studies (at right) and small drawings (on floor).
Here are Maggie, Austin Thomas and Brooklyn artist Adam Simon
. Don’t forget to check out Ad’s show at Valentine
DC artist Dan Steinhilber
looks on as I shamelessly treat one of my dogs like a toy. Photo by Jason Andrew (I promised to give him credit!)
Austin is saying something brilliant. That’s Elissa Levy’
s hair in the upper right corner!
Part Shih-Tzu, part Maltese. So handsome and earnest. Another excellent Jason Andrew photo.
The next day it snowed! Here’s a picture of the lovely courtyard outside my windows. The landlady says the building used to be a brothel back in the day. So much history (and scandal) in DC…
