Five Years Of Acrylic Palettes

five_years_grid-2004-09.jpg

Thanks for scrolling through what my acrylic palette looked like at the end of every day since February 1, 2004. That was the day I took action on the idea that these palette-scapes can be rescued from their transiency to offer an alternate view of a painter’s production and the living of a life.

palettes_2005_grid.jpg

Here is 2005 as seen from the perspective of what my acrylic palette looked like at the conclusion of each day. Click here to scroll through a towering five foot tall version.

I find it interesting how the stretches during which I was focusing on something other than painting in acrylic - working in oil, writing, traveling, laboring - attain visual prominence by virtue of repetition. Even the act of not painting can make a painting.

For a blast further in the past, here is the 2004 version.

AUGUST PROCESS REPORT: While these palettes were coming in and out of existence, the following experiences shaped the process -

• spent three weeks engaged in the direct care of my father through chemo and his first-round victory against lung cancer.

• returned to NYC to complete and sign "Goya Moment," the large, oil canvas I've been working on since Aug. of 2004. The complete time-lapse film of its development will be posted here in early Oct.

• made 91 graphite drawings and finished two acrylic paintings.

• subbed for Dad in a golf tournament, my first round ever.

• worked up seven minutes of monology for nyc's local open mics - podcasts to come.

• became involved in a class action suit against WorldCom.

• launched the first interview in TINSQUO's new W.I.T. Series.
