Last night Mary and I had a walk-through for the upcoming Menagerie event in DC. Our display space has been chosen and the wheels in our heads are turning as we plan how we will showcase our work and paint live for the crowd. We will also be tagging tees with some of the imagery from our paintings!
Below is one of three mixed media boombox paintings I've just completed.
I am also creating a number of small "Baby Boom" paintings.

All in a Sunday's Afternoon

After killing a painting that just wasn't working I felt I could breathe once more and was ready to create some new work. My mind is focused on simple pop imagery at the moment.

I was able to complete "Blondes", a piece I'd begun some months back but had been pushed aside and waited patiently in a corner of my studio.

I also added a few more strokes and paint splatters and a bit of graffiti to small abstracts in progress.

City Birds

Yesterday I completed this mixed media piece.
I wanted to create a painting that spoke of Springtime in a city environment.
I think (hope) I've accomplished this. I call it "City Birds".

I have started working on 2 smaller companion pieces.

Back in the Studio

I returned to my studio yesterday after taking a week off to move (again). While we are thrilled to be back in our old neighborhood (directly across the street from our old house, what are the odds?!), it was nice to escape the sea of moving boxes and get to paint something other than a wall.
My brain is all over the place at the moment so I'm simultaneously working on 3 very different pieces.
