White Boxes

White Boxes, abstract paintings on 24 x 24 x 3 deep boxes

I've finished the three white boxes. In the beginning I looked at them and wondered why someone would want them -- but now I love them! The texture is good, I like the pattern, and once again I'm intrigued by the very minimal color.

I spent the weekend working. I had forgotten how much paperwork is involved in a big project. I've completed six packets for the budget and art placement for Texas Clinic. Ready to present it as soon as I hear from the owner.

I didn't finish the three paintings for Mercury Grill. That's what I am working on now. I did make a lot of progress on the three photopaintings for the Worthington hotel.

And on Monday morning it's always nice to get purchase orders, but unfortunately one of the two I received today was not my image. Darn it all!

Still waiting to hear back from the Ritz. Finger's crossed.

All in all a very busy day. Not quite enough of me to go around.

thanks for your comment on my blog Robin. I believe a few months ago I emailed you via the healthcare art site as I was looking for another avenue to get my work out there. I never heard from anyone, but I'm glad you found my blog and like what you see. Thanks for the tip on the Florida thing.
now its my turn to check your site out :)

Robin - haven't check your blog for a few months (life gets like that). I'm so happy things are going so well for you - I love your work.

Although bummer on missing out on Berkeley - great place - Chez Panisse - yum. Okay - I did my undergrad there - I didn't have money to eat at Chez Panisse - but I do now every time I go back.

No one has to tell you to keep busy, Robin.

Wow!!! So pretty! Simple but amazing! Isn't it funny how the simplest things can make such a big impact?

Well, there's a Japanese simplicity going on. Each stroke becomes important and conveys it's own autotomy. As I view them I'm almost wishing there was LESS - like there's too much going on. And this is the beauty of them. Get it?
