update: by gardega

I have been slacking on the ole blog lately. Deadlines and other matters dragging me in many directions. I am back into the paint which is nice! I just finished a decent Deluge painting (part of my series) that is 4 x 5 foot. It has a certain harmony..I walked around it (the canvas) for a month before I hit it. Then it was a matter of two days. Sometimes it is harder to find harmony in a simple painting than a detailed labored work.

Sunday is a workday for me went to look at new mural job in long island. Tired now


I installed my holy family etching was hairy...10 feet up on a scaffold with heavy piece of glass art that to fit into a space that was only a quarter inch larger than is installed...had no time to photo, will do so soon.
