Shorter, Warmer Days

Passing Through - in progress ©2011 Katherine Kean

Besides working in the studio, the past week has found me picking work up from various summer shows. Easy enough, yet time consuming - balancing the galleries' hours with traffic. Picking up from Shoshana Wayne was a snap - no traffic, plenty of parking, no line, no problem with paperwork, no problem all around. Nothing at all like the installation day.

I'm very aware that the days have started getting shorter. Because of my travel plans, and knowing that seeing new places can change the direction I've been working in,  I'm attempting to finish everything that I started during the past two months. The one above is almost there (you can see it's beginnings here) , a large landscape is more than halfway, but an even larger triptych  - 10 1/2 feet wide - is barely started with just a graduated color ground applied. But, we have our summer heat now, so the garden and the hills are not the tempting distractions they were a few days ago, and everything will dry quickly.
