Going large, going small. I have 100 4x4 squares and I'm going to paint on them all. I started out using the 4x4's as warm ups for the larger paintings I'm working on but I've become rather enthralled with the small pieces. It's surprising how much impact fits into a 4x4 square. It's also nice to test imagery for addition to my "visual language". Some things have fit well, others haven't fit so well and have been painted over. Here are some of the first batch, more to follow.
Here's a small piece I finished recently. I like that all of these men are sitting about each other with headphones on - as if listening to something together in the open air is out of the question. Why? And what are they listening to?
I'm using smaller pieces as warm up exercises for the larger pieces I'm working. I really need to get some larger work done for the streets next year (I feel like a prostitute when I talk about "the streets"). Updates may be fewer and further between but I will try to post some of smaller stuff inbetween. I do have four days coming up with nothing scheduled and am hoping to fill the days with painting!
