Our Dangerous Spring
March 2020. Acrylic on canvas, 14 x 11 in.
Welcome, my friends. I have more time to paint now, and I’m feeling like talking about it. That impulse, in combination with the currently limited opportunities to show and discuss the work in the regular contexts (it’s a pandemic, baby), have led me back to the blog format. I’ll be posting intermittently about my experience in the studio, work in progress, thoughts on older pieces perhaps – the why, the how. Also maybe some other artists I like, events coming up, and…we shall see.
I’ve blogged before, including a blog of cultural documentation and another, more literary, art/identity performance. The format suits me, although I can already tell my tone here is different. I’m older, less interested in my own charm. It’s the work I’m interested in. It’s the work I’m writing about.
I’ve debated leaving comments turned off but decided I’ll try it out and hope it doesn’t distract. But for sure, please do send me any thoughts or questions via the Contact page; I will be happy to hear from you. If you want to receive new posts automatically there are RSS and WordPress buttons in the sidebar, plus an option to receive email notice of new posts. And please do check out my Magicgroove website, where you’ll find lots of my recent and past work and projects, press and interviews, etc.
