Cleaning House

Last week, I took the time to clean some necessary house!!! I don't really like to admit this, but I hadn't been in my studio for like 6 months prior to last week. I go through spells where I feel like I just need to spend time working at my work desk in my room. And when I do this, my studio gets totally neglected.

So last week I started the massive cleaning, which included spiderwebs, and lots of dead cricket parts. It wasn't really something that I wanted to do off hand. I tend to do almost all of my painting (especially larger projects) in my studio. Since I have been asked to do a project that will take place later this month, I was forced to get in the groove and get in the studio. Once I get into the swing of things, I really enjoy being there. I actually look forward to being there.

The project that I have been asked to do is for a tea for a Co-Pastor of a church in Harrisburg. My aunt commissioned me to paint a teapot, but gave me free reign as to the design. I decided to use colors that signify royalty (purple and gold) for the pot and a blue-grey background color.

Here is what I have come up with so far. I will be doing the design tonight and hopefully finishing this piece come the end of the week.

The beginning of what may be an elaborate pot

Stay tuned to see the final outcome. I may be doing a bit more posting this week in order for you all to see the progress of the project. Caio until next time!!!
