Oil on canvas with library catalog cards.
January is one of my favorite months. Quiet, sparse, and dark, it is a month of artistic indulgence and introspect. The sky takes on an incredible topography with every storm rolling off the Pacific, inspiration for throwing some color on canvas. Groups of oily black ravens land on my lawn heralding the new year with agitated squawks and caws. My studio is cold this time of year so I'll hunker down in the back spare room of the house to work. Warm, southern exposure is everything in January. Here's to you, my fellow bloggers, designers, and artists- I feel it's going to be a very good year. Cheers.
