A bit more of the work, today.

Back To It!

I am more than a bit delighted to say that I am back at the drawing board today! It has been about a month and I have been 'feeling it' this past week, so very happy to be back at work. This, the first of several new works earmarked for my upcoming showing in a small group show at Main Street Gallery in Annapolis, is a rendering of our National Zoo's own Tai Shan. Of course, the little guy is growing up now and does not look like this reference from sometime early last fall. In any event I'm pleased to post the beginnings of this new work.

Yet another week has passed and I have still not begun work in the studio. The drawing board is set up, the lights are positioned and I actually have unpacked much of my reference material. No excuses, just busy doing other things . . . like unpacking all my frames!

You never know how much you have amassed until you move! I had no idea I was the proud owner of so many frames until I packed them all up and began unpacking them this past weekend. Most have found a home in the basement, where I am sure they are going to reside in the long run, but there are still several boxes of them in the studio waiting for a space on the shelves! As you, no doubt, can tell from the accompanying photo of the shelves in the basement that are overflowing with frames of all shapes, sizes and descriptions, I have a lot of work to do to fill them up! I have promised myself that I will not even think of buying a frame for the remainder of this year. Not having counted what I have in inventory, I have no doubt that I could easily work for the next year or more and not fill every single one of the frames I have on hand.

So, that task, filling up all those frames with works of art, shall begin soon! In the meantime, does anyone need a 9" x 12" frame or two, or three, or four . . . ?

Well, it has been a week since my last posting and boxes still remain unpacked! There is progress, but slow at best. I do have my drawing board set up but it is currently piled high with 'stuff'. I hope to be able to sit and work by this coming weekend, but not taking bets on that one! If I could find my camera bag, I would post some shots of the mess.

Work will begin soon, though, as I have much to do before the hanging of the small group showing that I am a part of at Main Street Gallery in Annapolis for the month of June. More on that, later.

Some have recently wondered if I had fallen off the planet. No, just been in the process of moving and setting up 'shop' in a new place, new environment, new surroundings, new everything! Most of the boxes are still sitting and waiting for unpacking and the studio is far from being organized just yet, but it will get there soon and I shall be back at work then.
