Work in progress

My co-op studio/gallery A.I.R. Studio will be hanging the annual group show next week. The theme for the show is the "four elements." This piece, painted on four supports, each 24" x 30", is titled "E-lements." I may even have it finished by the opening July 17... here is, via iPhone photos, what I have so far. You can see my method of building up layers of color with paint thickened to the consistency of cake frosting:

from "The War of Art" by Steven Pressfield

"As artists and professionals it is our obligation to enact our own internal revolution, a private insurrection inside our own skulls. In the uprising we free ourselves from the tyranny of consumer culture. We overthrow the programming of advertising, movies, video games, magazines, TV and MTV by which we have been hypnotized from the cradle. We unplug ourselves from the grid by recognizing that we will never cure our restlessness by contributing our disposable income to the bottom line of Bullshit, Inc., but only by doing our work."
