Hunting and Waiting

Sporting Club Russafa Update: After waiting a year for a vacancy at this artist studio, I finally thought I was going to be working there. However, the day before moving in, the artist informed me that she was in fact not leaving and therefore I was denied a space. I never imagined coming to Spain to end up working alone in a home studio but the artist I was meant to share a space within Sporting Club told me she had to wait four years for a spot. So the hunt/wait continues…

In the meantime I have started a new painting. Here is a detail shot:

I am working on creating a richer surface in texture and tone. It is difficult since my paint is so watered down but I’m trying to layer more pigment on the flat of the canvas before I introduce the imagery of lines. With this piece I applied an extra layer of background color over the initial imagery and then continued with the deep pink/magenta color on top. So far I like the results of this new technique.
