Nothing ever remains the same in my life. It is always in a state of fluidity..which is an oxymoron if I ever heard one. Anyway, I am making a few changes in the workshop while working on several projects at the same time. Fluidity! Remember that!
I decided some weeks ago to possibly rent out my house next year…or at least a room…so I could have someone here in the house while I made some other arrangements in my life. I will maintain my studio and am in the process of converting it into a temporary apartment for me when I come to check on the house or do maintenance, or just to make some art in the studio when I get tired of rambling around.
The back corner has become my painting corner so I guess I’ll just leave it that way, but am moving my large wooden desk from my house, into the corner to serve as my paint table, instead of the fold-up table I now use. This gets the big desk out of the house and turns it into a useful addition to my studio. The computer, printer and scanner that was on the desk will just have to find a new home…like me.
One of my current projects is moving along, albeit at a snail’s pace…a very slow moving snail I might add. That project is the 4 color serigraph (silkscreen) print that I am re-doing from 40 years ago; “The Flaming Ford”. Before I made it a small 9×12 size print and only made a few. But this time I am using all new materials and equipment as I delve back into the silkscreen printing process. The new version is about 10 x 14 inches on Rives BFK paper with a nice wide white margin. I have the screens made and am currently mixing the four colors. I will soon be printing the first color on 20 pieces of paper for the edition of 20 prints this time. I have some older paper that I will cut down and do a couple of proofs on that before I start the edition on the new paper.Please share... ...You'll be glad you did!
