Anyway---the above painting, (not finished, in this photo) is called "Collect," 24"x24" Acrylic paint and ink on wood.
...and a detail of the same painting. I've been using one calligraphy pen/nib for this whole series of works. The nib has actually worn down! The first painting I used it on, I could get spider-thin, delicate lines from it. Now---only thick lines. Pretty funny. I'm going to bring it to the opening with me in my pocket. It's been my main tool for so much work in these paintings that I think it deserves a night out and some recognition as much as I do.
5 days until the opening.
I have a careful list of everything that needs to be accomplished on a daily schedule. Tonight will be the olympian effort to take care of details----tomorrow afternoon, the art goes to the gallery.
Wish me more luck.
