Been a while since I wrote much about my process with each of these paintings.  I miss doing that...
This piece ended up being painted with small brushes.  There was too much going on to be able to get it right with my knives. Fun!
I have moved into a HUGE new studio space - rather unexpectedly after a friend's boyfriend was leaving his old 'storage unit' in a very old warehouse in my town.  Old orange processing plant.  From the outside it looks really rough around the edges - shows it's age.  But inside is glorious!  Space like a 'real' studio space should have.  Which is good since I'm in the process of painting several new large pieces for my next show - a 'pop up' that will be in Savannah GA in May.
I've also been asked by a new art gallery - Hue Gallery - in Wichita KS to join their roster of represented artists.  Getting my paintings framed and ready to go for shipping.  I'm very excited about this - it's the first time my paintings will travel in a shipping crate - scary.
