Cardboard Sketch Books, originally uploaded by sminzy.

So I’ve been in the studio sporadically – but I haven’t produced a whole lot. I made these three cardboard and staple sketchbooks. Hopefully I’ll be able able to fill them with lots of good junk.

Ok, so, framing my canvas was a little harder than I thought it would be. So I have a bunch of poorly stain lattice lying around my studio with really rough edges semi sanded edges. I’ll keep working it tomorrow.

Finished the above painting this morning and started a new one based on this print:
hate is a strong word
I’m a little scared of the detail as well as the lack of detail, but it will all work out.

SmithMicro did a user profile of me on their website, for which they gave me some free software. Very nice.

Had a productive, proper, day back in the studio. Visited with artist Ian Blethen, talked about his MFA program and was inspired by his commitment as well as his artwork.
Finished this painting (above) – well I kind of screwed up the gel medium coat so I’ll have to do some minor repair work. In addition I stared a 18″ x 30″ painting of this print :
George, they're missing!

Finished this vacation painting (almost). I just have to touch up the black and give it a layer of medium. Also, I created four cardboard mounds for the Art dogs window – five to go.

Showed my dad around the matchbox studio.

So I spent today finishing up this short version of a longer piece that I’ll be sending to SmithMicro tonight or tomorrow.  It includes my prints The Racket and Release.   I also re-learned how to stretch a canvas, stretching and gessoing three for my vacation next week. Hopefully I did it right and they won’t sag or warp. Had a great day in the studio.
