I seem to have hit a sweet spot this week in the studio. Saturday I cut and prepped four new small panels for the show, even though I have only two weeks left before showtime and really need to focus on finishing some work. I gessoed and then base coated them in acrylics and was ready to roll on Sunday. Slam-bam! Wet-into-wet with a pliable brush, 1-2 session paintings. It's been a very long time since I've used this approach (early 1990s?). The scratching and scraping and struggling of the past few years, especially with this body of particular work, just gave way to a more confident, efficient, and focussed image-making. Yee-ha!
About freaking time, though I wasn't even aware how overdue I was for some serious artistic flow.
