re: SITE CHANGES: over the past few days, i played around with my drop down menus. there were too many of them & it was confusing. so i placed all the pages showing paintings or drawings under works. since greece spans a continuous 15 year period in my life & career as an artist it's a separate header. CV & story are also separate topics & deserve their own headers.so if you're a regular visitor, this will clear up any questions you might have. i'll probably continue to refine & improve this site in the future, & i'll let you know if something changes.
1:35 PM: for the moment, and until it undergoes the house hanging test, motion 16 is declared complete, resolved, finito. this morning i stretched a new canvas, 38x38" and am currently engaged in making the under-drawing for it.
for those of you who haven't been following my blog, in this motion series, an under-drawing is exactly what it says: a drawing in colored pencil, graphite & crayon which, when it's done, will be sprayed with fixative & partially painted over in oil, so that bits of it peek through the final painting; an underlying energy boost, it is, contributing unplanned & often brilliantly placed accents to the oil painting above. leaving everytrhing to chance is foolish. as is eliminating the possibility for it.
