Breathing Room

Yesterday I cleaned my studio and rehung my new drawings so they have some space between them. They are very different from each other, so I'm not sure that I will call this trio of drawings a triptych after all! They will be shown together, so I guess I'd call them part of a series... I guess this is a matter of semantics...

I've titled the series Primers, and I'm still working on them. The Artist Studio building where I have my space will be participating in First Friday Artwalk Open Studios tomorrow night, so they will be on view. If you are in the area, c'mon downtown!

P.S. I am realllly frustrated with the spacing issue I'm having with my posts here on Blogger. I need to consult an expert!!

I'm jealous of all the lucky people who get to view these in person!

Cleaning up sounds good, but i had a pretty nasty spill on my skateboard today. I think i'm out of commission until i see the chiro. :-P

I love these--I think they work together or individually--yes, I wish I was a lucky one to see them in person!!

These are just incredible, masterful works, Martha!

I like the spacing. Each drawing is so powerful and complex--they need some breathing room, and function beautifully as independent statements.

Marc and Sue, I wish you lived closer and could come visit me in my studio!

p.s. Marc, I hope you are on the mend!!

Hi Don!

Thankyou so much! Yes, the space is good. I really enjoy working at this scale - I'm about to start a second trio of 8' x 4' drawings! :^D
