Three Sunsets

I started painting late last night, past closing time for the studio, but it helps me think.

The day was scrambled, since I got the news that my proposal for Texas Clinic had been approved. It's the biggest project I have ever tackled (but we won't tell them that!). I'm so excited -- and of course I can't sleep. I got up at 3:30 am today. Crazy.

The sunset paintings are not a triptych although it looks that way from the photo. They are companion pieces, and I will probably use them in Texas Clinic.

My next step for the clinic project is doing the actual design work. There will be 15 or so original paintings. I have a pretty good idea of what they will be, but I need to finalize it and get it on paper for approval by the owners. The balance of the project consists of about 65 photos and/or prints of my work, all framed. I have an install date of October 15, so I'm glued to the studio until then. I hope my creative muse sticks with me.

Exciting! Is the support raw canvas? How will they be mounted/stretched with so little space between? Just interested :-)

Hi Bee -
These are canvas, stapled to the wall in the studio. They are separate pieces, but you can't tell that from the photo. They will be stretched and framed separately. It's just helpful for me to hang them close together for painting.
Thanks Magenta!
