In the Studio This Week, March 19, 2024

The studio is always and interesting place full of canvases in progress and others nearing finish. This is a portion of the dozen or so oils in play currently.

It is very important for me to have a lot of works going for a number of reasons. It allows for a variety of compositions and color to choose from and it keeps me from getting too bogged down or pressured to complete a particular work. I can stay busy and proceed at a leisurely pace, hopefully avoiding the temptation to overwork a canvas or to make shortcuts to hit a deadline.

There is another interesting side effect as well. Because there are so many options and opportunities available, each canvas is not too precious. Alterations are the norm going forward, these works require a number of changes and sometimes drastic ones for the best result.
