This is a pano I pieced together. Wanted to get a shot of the studio for the beginning of the new year. any drawings in progress. Big drawings. Some are 32 x 44 and some are 22 x 32. Oh in inches.
I cleaned everything up after this shot and a series from the opposite direction. Three of the drawings are now finished. I have to manage putting some of the drawings in flat storage.
I've been working on our winter solstice cards for Stellarvisions. This is the first time in over a decade that the card will be art or a reproduction of art that I have made. This year the image will be from my cosmology series : cosmic strings. The actual small drawing is done in pencil. The reproduction is on a vellum sheet which is attached to the front of an 80# cream colored smooth sheet.
We had a well attended holiday show this year at sherman mills. The artists of b32 organized a sale and I'm happy to say that I unexpectedly sold one of my small plein air pieces. It was a north country drawing done up at the cabin in 2005. I enjoyed talking with the Ellen the buyer about my process and various works that I had hung for the occasion.
I was in the studio yesterday. Had a very productive first day of december. But, this is what it is like in Philadelphia today. This is a very good reason to be home blogging. I miss a fireplace. I've got some candles and incense burning to create an atmosphere that pushes away todays weather. I know that this is just the beginning. I'm looking for fluffy white stuff not pinging ice pellets.
BUY HANDMADE for the holidays.
Support artists and artisans by purchasing handmade and unique works. Skip the malls and support local artists.
I'm going to be in my studio this weekend offering some small works at special prices. You can visit a number of my b32 buddies and some of the other sherman mills artists. Hope to see you.
