At the Moment

November 22, 2010 § Leave a comment

I’m in Minneapolis at the moment. I have a basement studio here where I can work large if I choose to. I wonder about the value of working large and the power that some small works have. I know it is an old if not ancient tendency for the artist (particularly the male painter) to think that size matters… Perhaps it does. Most of my paintings are not very large but they can come across in photos as large images. One thing for sure is that you do work differently when you are painting large scale. I have the problem of controlling drips with paint brushes loaded with paint and attacking a big vertical surface. I will experiment with bringing the splash and splatter under control while I am out here. At least I hope to. More of my work can be found here.
