40% of each of the 15 paintings for the Children's Hospital Proton Project (with ArtWorks and Kolar design) were due and submitted today. Here are some details from a sampling of the work.  Here's hoping that no major changes/modifications will be recommended by the review committee!

hope and courage

underpainting for two bigger- than- my -usual paintings.  on deliciously expensive (thank you ArtWorks for your generous supply budget) arches 300lb watercolor paper.  Soundtrack:  The Black Keys, Alt-J and the perfect band for generating creativity, Radiohead.  Hope and Courage for the young patients at Children's Hospital/ Hope and Courage for the exhausted artist who is under a time crunch.

Reconfiguring the Studio

The Children's Hospital project has been delayed numerous times....and to cope, I have been prepping paper, gathering supplies and reconfiguring the studio.  Good times!  Kudos to Dennis Risch and Becca Risch for all sorts of invaluable help with the studio.

Coming out of the Woodwork

While I wait for approval to start painting the ArtWorks/Children's Hospital pieces (deadline now extended to May)  here is what I'm working on .  Exploring new palettes, pushing my lean toward cubism and dwellings to something less whimsical (although once the gig begins I'll be all about whimsy!)    Kudos to Alt-J who provided the soundtrack for this painting and the title, too.
