Hm, after changing over to my XML gallery I don’t know if it is the right choice for me. I have way too many paintings I need to keep track of and I did like the “at-a-glance” nature of my previous design. What I need to do is marry that thought with a more sophisticated viewing system. Guess it’s back to the drawing board with a different kind of XML gallery. At least this has been getting me off my duff about updating my site, which is always a good thing.
In other news, started doing some new paintings which are a radical departure from my Graphic Flora series. I was inspired by a painting hanging in my friend’s home. It was an abstract painting with lots of swooshes of paint, but inscribed within the paint were some circles, which struck a chord with me. Something about the circle motif, and also inscribing into thick wet paint. So starting from that simple inspiration, I decided to go for it. The result is something I’m not sure is done yet, so I’ve been having it hang on my wall to “marinate” until I determine whether it is really done or not. Pictures to come soon, hopefully!
