When I restarted Art News Blog at the beginning of this month I told myself that I wouldn’t make it my own personal diary and would just stick to regular art news, but blaaah, where’s the fun in that? There’s a whole bunch of regular art news sites out there doing great jobs and I don’t wish to compete with them. I just post stuff that interests me and my studio interests me! So here’s what I’m doing in the studio..
I started working on clouds a few weeks ago. The past few months I have been in love with clouds! I never realized just how beautiful they are. So I thought, screw this, I’m painting clouds for the next year or two!
They’ll end up being more about paint than clouds, but clouds will be my starting point. I don’t think I have finished any yet, but this one below is probably closest to being finished..
A couple small unfinished clouds and a self portrait that never seems to finish!
I would rather paint than clean the studio
I hate stretching canvases almost as much as I hate cleaning paint brushes. Not much else interests me about being an artist other than the act of painting itself. I love painting, thinking about painting, and looking at paintings.. the rest is a drag.
Here’s a picture I finished earlier in the year with an awesome new/old suitcase below it.
I started sharing artist studios when I was working on Art News Blog previously and had more ready to post but lost all of my emails! It’s something I’ll probably add to in the future as I love peeking into other art studios. Here’s my old studio from 2009.
