Summer Update

As usual, I had high hopes for a creative summer.  Instead work got busy and so not much new work is coming out of the studio. I do have a few updates, though.
I was contacted in July by a movie studio asking to use two of my paintings in a movie that is shooting now in NYC.  Once I get the O.K. from the studio I can mention the name and give more information, but for now I am living vicariously through the two paintings.  This will be as close as I will ever get to acting in a movie and meeting some of my favorite actresses! Here's an article from Variety about the movie.

Volume 38 of Studio Visit Magazine was just published and I have two paintings in the magazine.  The latest volume can be downloaded at http://studiovisitmagazine.com/volume-thirty-eight-participants
I did start five paintings in my new Emerging series.  Sadly, only a few hours were spent on each and no progress since June due to a busy summer of work. Here they are on the 'thinking shed', which is a great place for me to really step back and think about where the paintings are going.
