As a sense of “normalcy” begins to return I’m thankful for how strange and new it feels. Our son recently started kindergarten, which is why my schedule has opened up, and he’s loving the action packed days at school. A lot has happened since last year and having regular time dedicated to making art again is pretty awesome.
Over the last few weeks I was able to bring resolution to a new series of works that have been in creation since late 2020. This series is titled “The Yearlings” and consists of (10) 8”x10” acrylic paintings on canvas panels. This was a challenging series for me to finish but I’m happy with the discovery process and how they turned out. There are a few classic motifs running throughout these panels, like the Tread and Helmet.
I’m looking forward to continuing working on new projects as the season moves towards winter. I hope that your creative lives are in good shape, keep at it!
It’s been a really long and foggy year. As you know the pandemic and election have made life stranger than ever. My family has been reclusive in attempts to hold off the virus until we can get one of the available vaccines. Among the strange scheduling I managed to create a decent amount of work. The paintings, digital work, and photography have continued to provide challenge and resolution. We got the start of a new shop/gallery/studio built on our land, which is a major development that has been a dream for a long time. I look forward to a new year with fresh projects and continuing to build a creative vision to further manifest a path in the arts. Here’s to you having a nice launch into 2021 as well!
In terms of things getting shaken up and being different, it’s all about that and more these days. Since my last post the Beta Broadcast podcast made it to 12 episodes and has been put on hiatus. The Covid-19 pandemic continues to make life interesting with a changed schedule and shifted priorities. Creative efforts are still happening, just at a steadied pace. It has been nice to enjoy the outdoors as much as possible while preparing for the winter. My son Esher is about to turn 4 this month and is a blast to hang out with everyday. He is an amazingly creative and curious kid. We are entering the countdown to have a studio/shop built on our land hopefully before the weather really changes. I’m looking forward to having a new space to access larger scale works and a variety of other creative experiments. I’ll keep this short and sweet as an end of the year update will be happening soon enough. In Art We Trust!
