Taking a break from packing to post one of the only two pieces I've done in these last difficult couple of months. So, showing you this one and I will try to post the second one too, before I move this weekend. I have felt guilty having no art on my blog for a while now.
These oil and cold wax pieces are a little hard to photograph; because of the wax layers, the paintings actually look slightly different at different angles.
I'm at that point in packing where you just stand and stare in a daze, shaking your head at the impossibility, at everything that still has to be done.
...Especially when it comes to the 400 sq.-ft. art studio. I haven't even made a small dent in there as yet. I honestly still don't know how I'll even begin packing all that up. I do know that I will have to move all the actual art myself. I hired two movers to do stuff like the sofa and bed, but I can't afford to pay the prices that "art movers" would require, so I'll be making lots of trips over the weekend in my car to move canvases, panels, and framed and unframed paintings.
Today I bought a tarp which will be the first thing into the new apartment on Friday, to cover the floor of the bedroom of what will become my (small!) art studio.
Things are still feeling hard but I'm just trying to stay afloat, kissing kitties, and trolling for more boxes every day.
