I have started three paintings in the last week and a half and can't seem to concentrate long enough to complete any of them. The under-paintings are complete for all of them, but that's the easy part. It's the part I like since it makes the most immediate impact. I go from having a blank panel to having this image slowly appear, almost like magic. It really is my favorite part of the painting process.
So I have completed my favorite parts on these three pieces and, well, that's about it. The good news is that I don't have any work that is immediately due, but I do have a solo show at Arthaus Gallery in October and a three person show at JoAnne Artman Gallery in November. I should be starting those pieces soon so that I am not overwhelmed later. Maybe once we close escrow on the house and move will my mind be free to paint...In the meantime it will be slow progress.

|This is the most finished piece out of the three...still a lot of work left to do.|
