Problem Children

My studio is full of problem children so today I decided I would ignore them for awhile and just start on a new piece. What would you do?
My second book, Surface Treatment Workshop, is on Amazon for pre-orders and is shipping in May. I am teaching some of these techniques in my classes and I love seeing how everyone makes each technique their own - especially one minimalist painter.

I mentioned wax paper transfers in an earlier post and people asked about it. Basically is is using a good grade waxpaper, rubbing it on a newspaper or inkjet print and transferring it to another substrate like rice paper, old book pages, etc.

I did get this piece, Lunch with Caravaggio, finished during the last several weeks. It is 24" x 24".

The Moroccan Love Shack so inviting in the summer, looks so lonely this time of year. I am counting the days until I can enjoy it again.

Surface Treatment Workshop is finally on Amazon for pre-orders. We are very excited about this book and we learned so much doing it. Both Sandra's and my art have changed significantly with our books.

The proposal for the third book on leveraging your art is finally going to review by the committee. Fingers crossed!
