A Little Sidetracked


So here's a real-life example of what happens when I have tons of work to do already, but I am offered a great little opportunity that I can't refuse. This is a miniature recycling bin (yes, it opens!) that I painted this week. It's 5 3/4" tall and 3" wide, and it has a million surfaces on it, so it took a lot longer than I expected — 4 days, including drawings/planning and gessoing.

But, it's being shown along with 9 or 10 others at the SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL in Utah in 11 days! It's a collaboration show that the Hive Gallery is doing with Global Inheritance (http://www.globalinheritance.org/). Apparently, they used to do full-size recylcing bins. I can't even imagine all the work that went into those. But anyway, if I get more info on the event I'll post about it. The inside is simply all brown, so no use showing an image of it. It was too small a space to fit my hand in to paint anything else!

Aside from that, I've been trucking away on those February show paintings— I'm 1/2 done with the entire show.
