I love order, especially in presentation. I love coherent series of paintings that demonstrate orderly forethought and creation. That said, I am surrendering to the lack of coherence and order in my presentations on this blog from 12/24/08 through the end of January (I'm predicting here). This passage is a normal (and regular) part of the creative process and there is a lot going on behind the scenes.

Report from the studio....

I played around with some pastels and, as much as I love the medium, it is too, too messy for my personal liking (or requires noxious fixative chemicals that I don't want to use). I am luxuriating in taking time over four water soluble oils of various sizes. I'm sorting through art work never aired publicly, cleaning up generally and throwing out what I can. Also am giving in to hobbling around for a while. And rearranging the inner workings of my blog.

Keep an eye on my Studies and Sketches blog where I'm posting daily.

Also, I'm posting some forgotten articles on the history of Landscape painting at My Great Day.

More soon...
