more painting prep

I love Sarah! Since I don't have photoshop right now or anything like that she helped me pick out this font and put together the type for my next painting. I might do this as a graphite paper transfer onto the canvas, I usually have trouble with those on canvas unless I put some sturdy behind it, otherwise it's too soft and doesn't transfer the graphite well. The painting is going to be about love in the modern age of technology.

go go go

I fiiiiinally started a to paint on a canvas I had stretched a month or so ago and just let sit around. I like to layer my backgrounds over and over so this is the very beginning. I wish I had a studio! Painting in my tiny kitchen is a bit of a pain

Well hello there

It has been quite awhile hasn't it? Im not in the writing mood so will share some photos of what has been going on. There is my work at Green Eye, the new Modern Wing at the Art Institute, and various activities in Chicago. This last month or so has been amazing but these last few days have been difficult as I had to say goodbye at the airport to someone who means a lot to me.
