New Work!

Oh gosh!

I have been so slowly chipping away at my upcoming show… I’ve been super excited about the medium… I posted before about it…

Lovely delicious texture. The kind of delicious you eat with your eyes (no mouth eating, it’s ground glass). And these plants, root and all. With washy acrylic coats.

I want to go work on those… maybe I will! I have an extra hour this morning. I was going to exercise, but maybe I can do both.

I love my studio, but am excited for when I can live where I work. The commute prevents me from going to the studio often enough, and in the evenings. And it can be creepy down by the tracks and riverbank at night. So much movement. The trains are very loud too, and there are chickens on the floor above us. Pretty much right above my space. They can be loud, especially the dude chickens.

Soon I will be working at Mizuna Gardens, a market garden that grows salad greens for fine restaurants. My studio is on the way home from there, so I will stop more often this summer and plan to put down daily paint.

Anyhow, I’m going to go get ready to do some of that now…

Here are some pictures of paintings that are not done. Please keep in mind their non-done-ness when you see them.

Happy Pi Day (and some studio photos)

Hi Everyone,

Happy Pi Day. I was going to post a raw vegan pie recipe for you to try! But I freaking lost the recipe! It’s so good, cashew pumpkin with cranberry topping. I have no idea where I put it though, so I will post it later. But it feels weird to miss an opportunity to post about pie on pi day.

I LOVE PIE! One time I had a birthday party where all of the food was pie. Savory and sweet pies, all vegan too. Oh the old days. There was a time I’d have birthday parties and people would come over! And bring pies. Sigh.

Anyhow. It’s not my birthday, I’m just antisocial, and a bit of a workaholic, so that’s put a damper on the party thing. At this point all of the people who would have come to bring me pie are sick of my darn antisocial behavior. So they’re at other peoples birthday parties.

So, yes, I’m going to the studio again today, as I have nearly every day for the past week. Even if it’s just an hour or so after work, I have been getting so much good work done! I’m excited to do some more! Paint! Yay!!!

Here are a few photos of the work I’m doing.
I also started a new figurative painting yesterday, so am looking forward to working on that. I think that series will be called something like “women’s work”, as it is so far images of women working. One has a wrench, one is quilting, one is painting (self portrait), and I hope to do quite a few more. I found photos of a girl with a baseball bat, a woman painting pottery, and a few more, but if you have any good ones let me know. I am interested in non-traditioal women’s roles mostly. I’ll look on the internet too. Yeah, I have no idea where I will put those, they are small, and I have no show lined up for them. Maybe a cafe? It’s been ages since I had a cafe show.

So, anyhow, here are studio shots for you, so you can see what I’ve been talking about.

Thanks for reading, and I’ll go look for that recipe for you.

Best,
Katie
