My Studio on Saturday

I should be painting but it's been a busy month with the wedding coming up and I can't seem to get much done. So I snapped this photo of my studio. Things get a little messy when I have several paintings in progress, and you can see all my references and 'stuff' on the floor, including the cat. On the easel is the first of a series I hope to work on called 'Fabricscapes' that explores fabric texture and symbols. This one is called 'Primary' because of the three primary colors I'm using. You can see the fabrics sitting on the floor. Usually the cat just lays right on my fabric, but for some reason she chose the rug this time. Leaning against the wall to the left is the other painting in progress: 'Green Wind.' It's upside down and I'm waiting for the thick greens and yellows to dry so I can go back in and work them some more. Also the sky, clouds and turbines need more work. I really, really want to start another painting because these two have been dragging on for so long, but I know if I do then I'll have three unfinished paintings instead of two, and it's just better to finish these first.

After the wedding it's back to the easel, seriously. No more shopping! I have to get some work done. Until then.....

PS: here's my studio on flickr.
