Notes 12 x12 encaustic Lpressman @2009
This past June, after creating work for a solo show, having other pieces out at other places, and sales coming to a slow crawl, I decided to stop painting for a while.

But, I have two shows coming up in September and October.
So, the juggling act begins....works from Texas and Atlanta are coming home.
Now, I get to see all the work that flew out of the studio on deadlines back for a respite, a re-look , and a re-evaluation. Then, they are out again.
Meanwhile, while I "wasn't painting for the past two months", I happen to have 15 pieces done. How did that happen? I think it was the simple act of not doing, of playing, experimenting and no pressure. Three of these were finished after resting and waiting for months for some attention,

What is interesting for me is to look at the three "resting" paintings and the new work together. I know in my mind where I want the work to go........it is the getting there that is the challenge.
