Creative clutter...



A clean studio is a bad sign when it comes to creativity, at least in my world. Nothing to fear these days!! The piles of resource photos, paint testing sheets, mock-ups, and assorted flotsam that have appeared over the past two weeks are getting more precarious by the minute and I couldn't be happier.

As you can see, I'm working on still-lifes right now. Look for more of my little goofy ducks in new and (even) sillier roles!! Here they are, just hanging around waiting for the next photo shoot. Although I set them down without planning, they look like they're eagerly awaiting the next proof to come off the printer.

  3. Chris, is that first photo a painting? It looks some some trompe l'oile pieces I've seen and thought you might be getting into that. Looking forward to seeing more of these little duckies, too :)

  4. Hi Rhonda! Not a painting -- just a pile of working materials, but you may recognize Ruddy Duck in the foreground. ;-D

    I'm using the print of Ruddy to check color relationships as I plan out a complicated painting.
