NECCESSARY ADJUSTMENTS

Periodically I find myself suspended between the past and the future, an involuntary pause in the otherwise seamless flow of life. I've come to recognize this as a time when the unconscious elements that drive and direct me need a "time out", a brief R&R to sort things out. This has been the case for the past few weeks. I returned from my recent trip with about a dozen paintings that had accumulated at my daughters house over the past few years (we frequently exhibit together), and the following day retrieved the work from my recent show here in Paducah. The result...a gallery overflowing with work and in dire need of attention.

With no desire or ambition to create, I spent the next several days focused on cleaning up my physical surroundings, while my psyche dealt with its own environment. I am pleased to report that efforts on both fronts have been successfully completed.

Here are several photos of the gallery's new look.






After spending several days looking through my reference photos I began working on 2 acrylic miniatures which I believe will move me beyond this pause and into a new series of paintings.
