Back in the Studio, For the Moment

[singlepic id=281 w=320 h=360 float=left] Artfest left me a bit disconnected for the last week or so. There's something about starting the fair season that really messes with my painting mojo. Invariably I return from the show with a great to-do list of details missed during initial preparations. This time it was price tag holders, an extra naugahyde baseboard and a few other things apparently too inconsequential to remember at this writing. I can't seem to shift gears out of show-prep mode after the show, so I tackle these projects instead of doing what it is that I think I am supposed to be doing, i.e., painting. After finishing those items and still feeling incapable of entering the studio, I moved on to more framing, sending out packets to persons of interest in the art world, and unexpectedly getting together a group of paintings for a new gallery

I'm finally back at the easel (at least somewhat) this week. I just finished Lacewing Study, shown here, which may be the beginning of a large pastel or oil. I hope to complete a few more small pieces in the next few days, but then it's off to Edmonds. Hopefully my recovery time will improve this go-around. Riiiiiiight.
