Journal - periodically published records of personal experiences and observations - a web log by Lena Nechet.
I like to keep only a few chosen art materials, compactly organized, to have space to start working on a large painting at any time, and daylight - natural or artificial - at any time.
I move my easel around all the time by grabbing the large support boards I use it it, and after several hours it tires out my back, in addition to manipulating big brushes and large cotton surfaces.
The lightweight gatorfoam-board practically solves this problem. I would prefer it to have a less porous surface though, it stains easily (mine is white).
My life is a bit easier now with two of these - one in imperial size, one in half.
I won't go to the Grand IndieWise film festival convention for:
55 Years Together - Project has been selected as a finalist in festival.
I knew it was officially selected already. Today though, I got the finalist notification letter with their finalist's laurel and an invitation to screening in Miami.
Too bad I missed it. Love Rothko, and recently watched a documentary about him. Thanks Rick for telling me.
From an article by James Hebert:
I wish you health and good friendships, and peace and progress to us all.
In early 2018, I plan to publish my collection of paintings, over 100 works. I have ideas of organizing special fine art workshops (most likely, in northern San Diego County, California).
In California Autumn can last through January.
