This Week

In case anyone was wondering, painting Stacked Journaling on a large scale all week will make your arms feel like lead for about three days. Still, it's a labor of love to me, even when things look and feel a little wonky.

I've been working on this piece this week...

(36" x 42", Untitled
canvas monoprinted with acrylic paint)

... a huge hunk of unframed canvas, but I've been thinking about this piece that I painted years ago called, "Redefining Pink".

Redefining Pink, 2007
 (18" x 24", 140# watercolor paper
acrylic paint with masks, 
stencils, foam printing plates)

In Redefining Pink and other pieces of that time, I was working my way through the girly color palette I had loved as a child, trying to bring it into a more adult, sophisticated realm so I could begin using it in my work. All these years later, I'm still painting with that same color palette.

Do you have a favorite palette you return to again and again?

Happy weekend!
