2012 has been a summer of play, experimentation, self-doubt and diving in head first. Mostly I've gone with my gut and resisted the temptation to analyze. This blog has been a way for me to push my studio experiments out the door before their time, before I've had the chance to think better of it. This is why the blog makes me uncomfortable, but I think it's important to feel uncomfortable in order to make interesting work.
I don't know how I feel about these scrap wood paintings. I've been making them all year and I never show them, but when people see them in my studio they love them. It may be time to think about how they figure into the bigger fabric of my work. For now, I'm throwing these two (new this week) out there for you.
