Space, January and New Work

What's going on inside the studio in January?

Had a studio visit by a gallery. They like my work as well as my photography. I think things may work out. Fingers crossed!

I've been working on several series that I began back in 2010 and 2011
  • Brown series (2010 - present)
  • Black and other colors on paper (2011 - present)

Running out of space and getting more and more ideas which becomes paintings.

Trying to take photographs of work from 2011 and now ... I really could use some lighting for that!

A couple of new pieces recently completed.

Just Hangin' Around

I am quickly running out of room in my studio. Trying to work 'big' isn't the easiest of tasks when you have limited space. So, sometimes bigger pieces end up tacked on a wall (if there's room!) or rolled up.

The working title of this series is: California. I began them in Sept. during my residency at The Art Students League of New York at Vytlacil. 

This piece hangin' on the wall was begun at the end of my stay ... it took a couple before I finished it. Of course, it has to be stretched.

Museum Day in Munich

A short trip to Munich to see Ellsworth Kelly, black & white at Haus der Kunst, which was awesome. Unfortunately, I couldn't take any pics. Just click on the link above. This was the highlight of our day spent at the museums.

Our first stop was Museum Brandhorst. No photos allowed! A very beautiful and wonderful building. The space is huge, yet sucks you in. Tons of Cy Twombly and way too much Warhol for my taste.

Next was the Pinakthek der Moderne. Another wow! Space and more space and you could even take photographs! There's a ton of fine art work to see.
