A New Year

It was the best of the times...

I was back in my studio on Friday for the first time in 2013. It was also, maybe, the last time that I will do much work there, as I am moving studios at the end of January, to a place that's closer to where I live in Chicago. Next time I am in the current studio, I will start boxing things up and getting ready to move.

So today I took  some of the 'coal circle' panels and canvasses outside and sanded them down for a while:


And then I dragged a few semi-opaque layers of matte medium across them, as follows:


That piece of mat board standing up in the background is what I'm using for a squeegee:


Note the plastic sheet: very important for catching all the medium/paint that slops over the sides of the pictures.
