A Slight Change In Plans and Into the New Year

Sometimes the first impression is the right one.

Last week, I was talking about the 16″ x 16″ canvas that I had just finished up in preparation for the January 5 deadline at the Southern Vermont Arts Center.  Since then, I have decided to go back to my original plan and do two 16″ x 20″ wood panels.  This is what I wanted to do first, and the only reason I chose to do the smaller canvas is because I had that size frame in stock.

I thought it would be easy to work around the materials I had, but in the long run, it just seemed forced, and I wasn’t happy.  I have been working on wood panels for some time now, and to switch back to canvas was the wrong thing to do.

So, with a renewed sense of purpose, the first panel is done, and the second one is well on its way.  This will be the first time that I will be framing out finished work, and I will show you the end results next week.

In this week’s post over at Wall Spin, I talk a little more in depth about the SVAC.  It’s a wonderful place, and I am grateful that it’s less than an hour away.

Finally, I couldn’t think of a better way to end the year than with a couple photos of my favorite people.  Thank you, all, for your generous support and inspiration.  I could not do it without you!

 Please continue to spread the word in 2012, so that I may continue to do what I truly love – paint!

Happy New Year!
