Work In Progress – The darkness falls and the artist emerges. I’m starting to feel like a normal productive human again and I’m meandering along the edges of “The Zone.” I’m going to take a break and replenish my masking tape supply. You waste a ton of masking tape when you are trying to be Richard Diebenkorn. I might also gulp down some black coffee and feast my eyeballs on some inspirational imagery to push me deeper into “The Zone.”

Here is a poster I designed for an art exhibition curated by Stephanie Garcia at Botanica, The Wichita Gardens called “Amuse Bouche.” The exhibit is a benefit for Rainbows United and will feature work from Marc Bosworth, Robert Bubp, Patrick Duegaw, Christopher Gulick, Wade Hampton, Nicolette Perez, Lisa Rundstrom, Melissa Slates, Ian Walker Stewart, Luke Swearingen, Kent Thomas Williams and myself. The big event happens on Final Friday, May 29th, 5-9pm. This will be an amazing show. Don’t miss it!

I decided to set aside the big painting and started working on a bunch of tiny paintings. I like to work on multiple paintings at once. If I hit a creative roadblock on one painting I can move to the next painting and keep going. Here is a painting I just started working on. It only has one layer of paper and one layer of paint. After I brushed on the paint I used a metal comb to scratch into the wet paint. Once the white paint dries I will probably add a layer of black paint.

Putting a fresh coat of varnish on 4 new 1′ x 1′ abstract paintings that I created for the “25 Years of Teaching with Charles Baughman” exhibition at CityArts. I have to deliver the work tomorrow!

The exhibition will open on Final Friday, March 27th from 6-8pm and Chip Chuck Charles will talk to the crowd at 7pm. The exhibit will also feature work by Barbara Amstutz, Lauren Fitzgerald, Conan Fugit, Susan Levine, Melissa Slates, Jordan Tull, Jaclyn Turner, Stephanie Ward and Charles Baughman. This should be a fun show.
