Typically when i am being creative 2 to 3 pieces come to completion before my eyes, in a week. Sizes will vary from 9×12 up to 16×20 normally, I dream big but large never seems to work out as well for me…but I sure can hang quite a selection in limited space. For those that might have been following my blog recently you are aware that I am not feeling as productive (just two very nice pieces in the past 6 weeks…i know I shouldn’t complain.) . Well the slow period isn’t going to get any better…mother nature has decided to help me take my mind off of it. I work in a nice basement that I have slowly reclaimed over the years from leaking…i wish i had the same type of basement as I did in Kansas…poured vs. these @#%* cinder blocks. At any rate 6 inches of rain with in a short period of time has me mopping, putting up fans, and figuring what to try next…I will say in the past this same event would have a nice half-inch of ground water through-out my fine gray painted slab…this time i have about 4 areas that allowed just enough to soak my limited floor coverings (old rugs) … I found working off a bare slab very uncreative for myself, besides when i need a break putting is better on a rug vs. the slick too fast slab…long story short it will take me a few weeks to do whatever to make my art cave dry and moldy free…and that leads to my title of this piece. So stay tuned while I work up a sweat for a while fixing my studio, the brite side might be renewed creative energy…plus a few aches and pains. LATER
ps…this is a photo from a visit to the Nelson Art Gallery, was to be a piece at a later date…hmmmm
Sounds like some structured procrastination! Thanks for following my blog!

omgosh this art is so gorgeous
I love your paintings! I hope you resolve your water problems quickly so you can continue. I had to put in a French drain and sump pump a few years ago. Lots of money for that.
Thank you for following my mosaics project and giving me an introduction to your work.
Sorry about the rain… that’s a very interesting picture in this post.
Hang in there Ken that’s a bad break, but dry weather ahead so keep your chin up.
Sorry. Hope it all comes right for you soon
How horrible! I’m so sorry this happened to you. I hope you get things back up and running again with the least amount of hassle.
