Painting again!

The studio is still overall difficult space-wise, but I got a space cleared out enough to start working! Today was my first day painting in months, and it felt soooo great--the smell of oil paint was an instant pleasure.

These two blue stripe paintings (I think they're each 10" x 30") are what I worked on today. They're in progress, but they may be nearly done, or they may end up unrecognizably different. That's one of the most fun things about using the cold wax medium. 

I think I forgot to mention that a few months ago, Osmosis Gallery in Niwot accepted two of my large oils. If you are so inclined and in the area (Niwot, Colorado), please stop by there and see them in person, and/or ask people you know to do so. (And if you have some spare cash, well, you know...) 

The gallery is packed with good art and is wonderfully funky, as it doubles as an architects' building. The owner is actually an architect herself, so has a good eye for aesthetics. Thank you for going to check it out! Every first Friday of the month they hold an open evening party, too.

Here's a pic of my two paintings hung at Osmosis, during a Friday opening party. They are the large, colorful ones. (Forgive the crappy iPhone3 camera quality.)


Face of contentment. Who wouldn't be, with a best friend like Gadjo?
