SS:046 Welcome to Wednesdays in Progress

Hello and welcome back to the Studio Sessions blog. This is the first of weekly posts scheduled for Wednesdays. In these posts you will learn about various updates in my studio. These updates can be about current works in progress, my methods of making, the conceptual themes that orient my experimentation, and artists who inspire and influence my process. I hope you are as excited as I am to begin this weekly commitment with you.

For the first Wednesdays in Progress, I want to share some visuals of ongoing works in progress in my studio. Today I spent the first half of my day in a zoom call with students from Olivet college discussing my experiences in graduate school. After that I began the first layer of color on the Keep It Up Neighbor prints which will wrap up tomorrow and ship out on Monday next week. Its been a busy day, but I'm glad I had time to share what's happening in the studio.

First I'll show you a few paintings that are almost done, halfway done, and just started. If you're familiar with my work I think you'll have no trouble deciphering the stage of completion for these. The first few are paintings that explore the neighbor character that I've been sharing. I'm eager to push the logic of this character and develop the world I think it could live in. I'm most excited to blend a sense of imagination and realism for these paintings.
