March moves on....
I am getting more of the March tapestry done. I would like to be at the black line along the edges of the cartoon at the very top of the photo by mid-month, which is next Tuesday. I think I'll be close. That is the half-way point.
The tulips are still fairly abstract, but they are looking like they should, I think. This whole piece is not very detailed, but is intended to read best from across a room. Here is the portion I've done, on the maquette.
My problem is that I have been weaving so much, I haven't done any painting this week, and I really need to get some pieces done for the gallery ASAP. Doing my taxes made it pretty clear that the painting has become my 'bread and butter.' Well, maybe not a lot of butter, but a crust of bread and a thin glaze of margarine, I guess, which is about all an artist can expect in today's economy! So over the weekend, I will try to do at least a small painting.
