Here is the companion piece to yesterday's painting. The studio is abuzz with activity. My two grade schoolers come out and play on the computer, Lorie organizes and designs the framing for my next shows, and I *supervise*.
Yesterday, while we were looking at frames and Lorie was crunching numbers for the frame order, I took apart an old work in the frame, wiped it down, and remade it to my liking. Wolf Kahn talks about painting as a struggle. He says, of a painting, that it is complete "when its potential no longer requires articulation." Chew on that tidbit for a while.
So, Lorie comes into the room, next, and says, "quit making paintings!" She knows we have to get ready for the shows.
