Some color was needed on this color musings site after the grayness of the winter shots. This small piece, maybe 6x11 or 7 x12, has been undergoing coloration for a few weeks. Finally it has a more finished feel to it, but taking a photo of a work with irridescent oil stick is tricky. yet something I like about the irridesence is the change occurring as light shifts.

I've been gessoing and preparing canvases, my new easel holds are large piece just in the beginning stages as i adherred some fabric to it today and more gesso. I did a couple of yupo pieces and left them still wet and moving as I turned out the light. Tomorrow i hope to get over with my camera to let you see what I've been up to.

hello Maggie - this is a wonderful painting - I love the colors and shapes - it sounds like the studio space is a fabulous springboard for your creative spirit - excited to see what magic you've done on the yupo - I used my wax to rub on the assemblage pieces I just completed - it gave them a nice soft glow :)

Hi Jeane, when dry, the wax can be polished with a soft cloth for a wonderful soft shine. Yupo takes magic and then the will to let it alone. Yes, enjoying!
