Life is full right now, which is wonderful, but leaves me less time for the painting part of my life. Day job, music-making, friend-seeing, family, and sleep -- all wonderful things -- consume most of my time. I admire parents so much these days (and kind of wish I were one).
But I am still painting. I keep a variety of stretched canvases around, and I am focusing on squares right now (ranging from six inches to six feet). I don't think in terms of "series" of paintings, but nevertheless, the abstract work I am currently producing feels like it hangs together. A few completed and in-progress pieces are shown in the accompanying illustration.
I'm feeling reasonably confident in my compositional craft (a quarter century of trained architectural design does come in handy sometimes), but color remains an intriguing journey. I am well aware that I shy away from certain hue families in my work. Well, in my oil paintings, really. Green, in particular. So my current canvas is entirely based on green, which turns out not to be nearly so scary as I feared!
