A new piece...

Bones of the Earth, April 3, 2010, acrylic, monotype, sumi paper on canvas, 30 x 12 inches

It was in the 80's yesterday, so I set up the portable studio table on the porch and went to work on this painting that I started last fall and set aside because I didn't know what else to do with it... sometimes an idea doesn't pan out, there was things I liked about it, but... no matter, I like it better this way...I'm thinking about doing a little more to it before declaring it done, but I'm still pondering what to do next...I keep staring at it and getting lost in the textures...

It seems I'm building up a lot of unfinished projects...I think I'm developing this log jam because I'm still working my way through The Fractured Hues of White Light, I "finished" the last chapter today, but I'm not "finished" with it. I have to review things I want changed, and revisit places that troubled me previously...there's more work to be done before I can say it is "DONE" and ready to go to print. I don't want to have to make changes after it goes to print, it gets expensive once it gets to that stage...it's a work in progress. I think once it's out of my hands and into the hands of readers, then I can refocus my efforts in the other works in progress that I have lying around...

This piece is already beautiful, it will be interesting to see how it changes.

your use of circles intrigues me...I'm doing some walking about on land that has had all the trees cut down and looking at all of the circles that remain in the form of tree rings...rather than be debilitated by it I'm attempting to see forms and textures and imagery that can translate into the studio that has something to do with the ability of the earth to heal...so your images are really resonating...thanks.

Lovely circles and textures. Bones of the Earth fits it perfectly.
