I suppose an artist never contemplates the complications that arise when packing a studio for a long distance move. Does anyone ever do that? Maybe, maybe not, but, I am about to. It’s really a big project – – – about 200 pieces, carefully wrapped in triple ply paper, then bundled together according to size….did I label what’s on the inside? Loosely. My intent is to unwrap all of them, like little gifts to myself, when I arrive at my final destination!
Can you tell I didn’t have a plan? I didn’t. I had 6 heavily gessoed 6″ x 6″ canvas boards ready to go. So I went for it. I did make a firm decision when it comes to favorite mediums…even where acrylics and polymers offer a lot in the way of innovation and the creative process….(sigh)…I find it’s much easier (and more satisfying) to manipulate oil paints and achieve bright and shiny colors!
So, this little group is at its end. Back to my oil paints!
