Early in the month, seeking a cohesive and expansive theme for the paintings to come this year, I reflected on recurrent subjects (by titles) in my abstract work, and finally after several days, the seed popped open - 12 paintings of significant size (36x48"), one for each month, to reflect my experience of that month. This will be a challenge during the active show season, but the goal itself is a commitment, and will provide inspiration for prioritizing and focus in my studio time.
|January|Transition - 2013|
And here it is, "January - Transition" and true to its title, slightly less in one dimension than my promised 36 x 48"!
I think of you as well, in this subliminal process of discovering ideas to be expressed. Many of you I've met and enjoyed in person, and I remember the pieces you've admired, your appreciation of the work, and the comments you have made, the pieces you have taken home, and why! Hearing your stories and exchanging ideas have enriched my life and now feeds my energy to ready myself for the coming show season in downtown Santa Fe by creating the best work I can do. Thank you for the big part you play in all of this!
