New Art For A New Year

Next week at this time, we will be starting a new year, and with the new year comes new ideas for my next art project. Actually, the idea for this new project came a few days before the new year, but that is close enough for government work. However, the first project is going to be finishing the apartment in the 2-family. When that project is completed, I will start on the construction of my next art project. The dimensions will be 42" in height and 28" in width. It will be made out of MDO plywood and pine. Once the case is completed and gessoed it will be time to draw and paint. There will be 4 paintings. One on the outside, and 3 on the inside. I plan to take photos along the way and post them periodically on my blog as the work progresses. What can this new art project be? The silk screen project that I started this past year, may also get up and going in 20-11. In that the print is from a painting completed in 1991, 20-11 seems appropriate enough. The ink is on the way so here is hoping actual prints will not be too far behind.

20-10 has been a good year for creating new art and finishing old pieces, and I am hopeful that 20-11 will be a good year for my art work too.

Stay tuned.

Hi Fred, Your art plans sound good. One thing leads to another when you take time to ponder what you have done and what might come next. Thinking is intrinsic to creativity. And, it has to be, at some stage, a combination of proactical strategy and imagination. Looking forward to seeing the new work. Best wishes for 2011!
