It's already been a busy week at the library, but I'm hoping to complete packing work to ship to AyrSpace Gallery in Ontario...something I had hoped to do a couple of weeks ago. It seems that often I begin many paintings all at the same time and then, after several layers of colour and hours of drying time, they tend to come together in bunches. Sometimes as I work it feels rather daunting, with so much work looming ahead of me, and yet when it all comes together it's quite thrilling.
Last weekend I was able to deliver the work I had promised to Bluerock Gallery and so it's a treat to be able to be at the documenting and shipping portion of these pieces as well. I still have two paintings to complete and ship to Chicago and then one more for commission. My challenge is to keep it all fresh and fun and not feel laboured because I know that the energy I put into the work also emanates from it.
While I've been moving back and forth between several canvases, I've also begun preparing canvases for my next 52 WEEKS PROJECT which will begin in January and I can't wait! There is much research and photos to review from our cache, but I know that a lot of the finalizing will happen during the process. This is just a fun way to get my brain into the project. I am so excited. A little nervous, too, but mostly excited.
