Today's painting represents my brief break from college course prep. I worked - nonstop - from noon until 5 PM on finalizing the syllabus and organizing readings into folders for the college course I will be teaching at TCNJ starting one week from today. Funny things happen to your body when you sit at a "desk" for that long and type...
Anyway, I allowed myself a "break" from work to paint kachina. Today I have placed him inside the paint box. The inside of the box is metal so I once again have a reflective surface to deal with. I simplified the labels on the tubes of paint - I will remind you that this is an exercise in composition, not an exercise in details or specifics. My brain is completely fried at this moment and I will leave you to decide if this is a good or not so good composition. Please comment - your thoughts are welcome and encouraged.
During my undergraduate studies, I spent a great deal of time in the painting studio working with traditional oils. Teaching middle school art for the past 12 years has taken me away from those roots. This "one a day" project is aimed at re-inspiring that creativity and technique.
