Canvas?.. . . .I Hate Canvas!!. . . /./.

I am still in limbo.. . … .. Finding a house has been harder than anticipated and so i am still without studio. I did hope that this time away from paint would result in another leap, so i was trying not to paint, even small bits.. . .. …. . saving what ever built up in that time to explode onto another self indulgent epic . .. , but four weeks is more than enough. Its going to be another four weeks until i can get my studio up and running again. So i had to bite the bullet and make do with what ever i could find.. .. . and what did i find? Well annoyingly canvas, canvas that had already been painted on. So i took the hand i was dealt and transformed the already existing paintings into Belbin’s.. .. .. It felt good to paint again but i seriously cannot wait to start on some real work.. . … /././..

Japanese Dream. . …. . // ..///. .

While clearing out my studio i found some old canvases.. . . .really old canvases! I haven’t painted on canvas for a few years now but was at a lost as to what to do with them, i certainly didn’t want to keep the atrocities that had gone before but i also didn’t want to waste such good resources. i left it for a couple of days then it hit me, chop off all the canvas and use the wooden frames to create boxed frames…. . . here it is so far. . . . The old paintings are now gone forever. . … . ./. . unseen..  ./// ./

Figurative Study.. …. .. /.

For this piece i have steered away from any particular theme or point by choosing a dull but inevitable part of everyone’s lives and focused completely on the aesthetic qualities.. . . .. here is Fig.I through the motions .. .. .. .. . so far.. /.
