The weather finally feels like fall. I'm not sure how long it will last but a few days will enervate me for sure. I look around the studio and see so many paintings in progress and I love it; they are all encaustics at the moment. I've fallen in love with the circle, circumference, the sphere, a hole in the wall, an opening. Frankly I'm not sure if I understand the significance of the emerging images but they please me. There is now a series of twelve "roundnesses" that appear to be one painting---8 x 8 inch paintings. Don't know yet what configuration they'll take. All in a row...I like that. So much texture. Can't get enough.
I've been fascinated by the NASA "Earth as Art" site. Can't get enough of the photos available online. They are inspiring my underpaintings for the current series but they're not the only inspiration. My photos taken through the microscope are a second sources and an interesting one.
