It’s one of the many joys of owning anything large enough to have more than a few moving parts (or software). We as humans have both. We need maintenance too. Not to mention the occasional reboot and system flush. That second one usually comes somewhere after the holidays. The funny thing about it is that when things go wrong or break they usually tend to do it all at once. All of this time floating around and things always seem to happen all at once.
So as I take my relatively high-mileage car in for a laundry list of issues of differing severity I also had to consider doing a bit of the same for myself. I was past due for my 40,000 mile checkup and there was work to be done.
It’s also been a good time to catch up with a few commissioned projects in-waiting. As I’m nearing the completion of the Aviva work I need to get my ducks in a row. I need to figure out how to juggle making work for upcoming shows and commissions. I’m looking forward to the studio work because it will give me the opportunity to start exploring the path I started down last year working more figuratively. I’ve got a few other ideas bouncing around in my head that I’ve been waiting to pull the trigger on as well. I’ll be getting the chance soon and that’s exciting.
Speaking of which the possibility of a new year is upon us if you believe in that anymore. I’m looking forward to it. I’ll be interested to see how this one pans out. I’ve got a few things in mind.
In the meantime keep your eyes peeled. This round of paintings is due to be completed soon. You’ll want to see them altogether when they’re done. 6 canvases of this size (36″ x 60″) paired up with equally-large wall sculptures… it’s going to be a damned sight to behold if I do say so my damned self.
