Update 8.22.09

Well not much work was completed during the week since my wife and I had to be out of town for a funeral and school started this past Tuesday. Anyway I had a chance to get some time in today.

Amber Bledsoe, the artist I am showing with on October 9 is plugging away as well. We have been discussing possible locations for the show. We have narrowed it down to three possible locations and will try and make a decision sooner than later.

The date - Friday, October 9 - and the time - 6 to 9pm - are pretty much set. We may have a surprise or two for those in attendance. Just have to see how it pans out.

Anyway on to the photos.

Progress Update 8.15.09

Finally got some time in towards the end of the week. Trying out some new stuff. Layering of wood strips and stuff like that. Progress, although quite slow at times is still progress. That makes me feel good. As always, comment if you want.

As promised...Show Update 8.8.09

Just got back from visiting some good friends of ours, the Rebman family, up in the Keweenah Penninsula in the U.P. of Michigan. They live in Lake Linden and were our tour guides for the week. Lots of fun and some time to relax. It is nice to be able to stay with friends in their home and share meals and whatever else comes our way.
Time to get back to work. Here are some shots of what is currently happening around the studio. Quite a few new ideas brewing. Just trying to find the time to hammer them out.

New work.

I have been working on finishing up a couple of new pieces when the time is available. And there has not been lots of it lately. My brother and I are painting a house for some friends. Big house too. So there goes much of the time that I would typically be using for my own work. But it is good to be working. And the views around the house are jaw dropping. There are times that I just stop and do nothing but stare at the clouds and fields that seem to spread out to eternity.

Thinking through quite a few new ideas for the show in October. From here on out all photos that I post will be in black and white. Don't want to give too much away before the show. Keep everyone on their toes.

Starting next Saturday I plan on posting photos once a week with new photos of work and sketches for the October show.

For now though, I am getting ready to head off to St. Louis for the Cards-Astros game. Then on Sunday we are heading north to U.P. of Michigan to visit some friends for the week. Lots of windshield time this week! 12+ hour car ride with the family. Please pray for my sanity, humility and patience. God help us all!
