reorganizing and painting little pieces

I organized a little in the studio. I had to in order to get a big piece out that is going somewhere. Now that I'm working in acrylic...sometimes and oil...sometimes and water based oil...sometimes, I had to separate them all and clear space. And sweep out a dead roach or two. And one live one.

I've been working on some tiny little pieces...a break from larger. Not that they cooperate any better. In rearranging things in the studio, I find too much work there. I'm faster at solving problems with the paintings now and that leads to too much stuff. Not saying that they are all successful. Sometimes I don't see the problem for years. But I think I'm going to have to start tearing canvas off stretchers. Of the crumbier ones. In the meantime little ones help me fill the constant need to "make". With a big one now and then.


  1. It's a wonderful painting- "A Little Passion." I like the whole composition- I also love the painting of the people in the boat. Great work.

  2. Love what you paint and what you say - refreshing to read and see 'real.'

  3. I check here from time to time to see what you're up to, Gail. Your work is so full of motion and action. Evolution sucks you in like...well, like a whirlpool.

    And I agree about "A Little Passion."

    I was using Stumble Upon today and came across this site and thought of you.

About Me

My photo
I am living and painting in the little town of Houston. A far way from my San Francisco beginnings. I paint what I see of the human condition, be it human, animal or object. The glimmer of humor, pathos, and spirit in so much of what I see is the basis of what I paint.
