Dawn decided that we’ve been spending too much time talking the talk in our artistic endeavors and not enough time walking the walk and, as a result, went down to the local library and set up a joint showing for us in September.
She says she wants to show some of her oil pastels and maybe a few photos, I think I’ll just show a couple of my minimal chromatic abstractions from the winter. To this end, I upgraded and bought a small electric miter saw to replace my old miter box and hand saw. We’ll figure out a place to set it up now that the weather is getting nice, and work on some frames this summer. I like to keep it simple, just thin strips of wood stained black, which should provide a nice contrast to the expanses of the white in the paintings and give a nice definite edge to them. I did some quick mock-ups of SHROUD and SOMA.
