art bloggage for thursday ....

i'm thinking my aim for summer will be two or three times a week blogging ..... as opposed to my school year aim of monday through friday blogging ..... during the school year, i try to do art every day .... so i have plenty to put down in the art blog ..... but that's just not happening this summer .... but, i've done a bit ..... and will continue to document the bits .... even if they are few and far between .....if i hear a wild uproar from my faithful followers that i'm not blogging enough, i can always fill you in on the lovely moments of my summer days ... for example ... i could write a long, long post about going swimming at a friend's pool .... and my dog? she fell in the pool ..... it was something! ... but not something, necessarily, for an art blog .....

so, i'm sticking with art, as usual ..... and here, a picture of a painting i finished this morning .... 

 and then here's a studio shot ... you can read about it on my flickr site ... there are lots of tags to read as you scroll your mouse over the picture there ..... it will help you identify some of the bits and piles .....

i have some small backgrounds that i could have worked on completing ... but i wasn't feeling it .... so i started some fresh backgrounds .... while putting on the maps i was listening to one of melissa galt's archived radio shows with an artist ..... it got me thinking about MY upcoming interview on that show .... and what my art is and how i started and what it means .... and ...eek ... head swimming .... it made me think about the path or paths that my art takes ..... i mostly work in series ....numbers of series at a time ..... and then sometimes unknowingly i leave a series ...stop exploring that path ..... so .... with these four i am going to go down an old path ..... i used to do so much work with keys and bottle caps and chunkier bits .....chunkier than paper ......but haven't lately ... in fact, if you go to my 100 set where i am chronicling the 100 canvases i made a new years' resolution to complete this calendar year, you'll see NO chunky ..... all vintage papers ... not much but paper .... so, i'm going to back up .... whip out that e6000, the stinkiest strongest glue EVER, and make some chunky art .... we'll see how that goes .... if it lasts....or if it is just a small diversion til i get back onto a more recently trod path ...... 


tomorrow, i am going to be interviewed on melissa galt's radio show, the art full life ...... you can listen to her archived shows here ..... 


on friday, june 6th, her show starts at 2 ... you can listen to it live on the computer, even if you aren't local .... go here to radio sandy springs ..... or ... don't really ... it might make me nervous if i thought someone might actually be listening ....eek! ...... wish me luck !
