Procrastinating on the Art
I fell off the art wagon again for about 2 weeks! I won't make any excuses, I wasn't too busy or anything, I was just being bad and I felt super guilty procrastinating even though I have a portfolio deadline next week. I know. On the plus side my artist statement is almost complete, just needs a few revisions and its good to go.
I'm about 90% finished with the avocado painting. I'm still not finished painting the outer edges so I will go back to it at some point.

I also started working on two other paintings. I drew the line drawing for a 12x16" tomato painting and another larger one which is going to be 16x20. Today I forced myself to pick up a paint brush and work on the tomatoes one. It's nowhere near finished, but I got farther along than I thought I would in one sitting.
|I used lots of reds! Alizarin Crimson Permanent, Venetian Red and Napthol Scarlet (it was a free sample in my Gamsol set!)|

I took inventory of my canvases and discovered I have 5 left in stock, ranging from 8x8 to 24x36 inches. I have a couple usable sheets of bristol board left as so I'll probably do a few a more smaller color pencil drawings for this exhibit. My portfolio is due on Wednesday 1/31 so I have to include photos or concept drawings of the works I plan to exhibit. The finished artwork is due at the end of April. I need to get back in the regular routine and groove of studio time. Time to focused!
