Recovering

December 29, 2010 § 1 Comment

OK I can feel a change. I can feel the desire to paint again. It has been like the feeling of not wanting to bring another person into this awful world, that some potential parent may have. I have piles of paintings and drawings, what is the need of just one more work to be tucked away into my limited space in Manhattan? Oh these were the dark thoughts. But this morning I have made up my egg tempera mixture. I have the desire to go off to the nearest art museum and take things in and be inspired. I will be painting soon, I can feel that and it is a welcomed change.

Painter’s Block

December 14, 2010 § 2 Comments

Well it happens from time to time. And this time it may be less a block and more the fact that I have had a lot to do related to
the end of the semester of an art history class I am teaching at the New School. I leave for Minneapolis on Friday, to face the winter head on. There I will have to focus and get some painting done.
Wish me luck…

At this time

I am back from Minneapolis, I did not do any work on my large painting in the basement. We were having temperatures in the teens and the unheated basement was not all that tempting. Also I am, loosing interest in the painting I am afraid. I have a small work on my easel here in New York city. I hope to get to this work soon.

Where Am I?
