I've been working on the aforementioned art show coming up over the past few weekends. We have locked in a date, so if you are in the Shreveport area on November 8th, 2013 swing on by to Artspace and say hello! The painting has been going variations of well....mostly good. It's a new challenge for me painting traditionally on a large scale. It took me a few weekends to just get the technical stuff out of the way like how much paint to premix, or what the actual drying speed of acrylic is (Varnish for oils eats through styrofoam! Whuddya know) All the same artistic whiny crap remains. "None of what I'm drawing is good, why am I even painting, none of these are the images I REALLY want to make" I've made almost 15 paintings!
I think that I will do this again. Once I've gone through it once I'll be better prepared.
I'm also sketching, and of course there is work work....which is exciting but none of which I can show.
thanks for dropping by, I'll be posting some teases of the paintings as the show gets closer on twitter (@avolkertron)
