cleaning the studio...

...and other adventures in art

Here’s what I’m up to in the studio right now: big paintings, more of which can be seen here.

This new one, still in progress, is acrylic and chalk on unstretched canvas, and is approximately 9’x6′.  The ladder in the photo shows the scale, which is important to the piece.  I’m thinking about the inward-turned figure in contrast to larger-than-life scale.
