. . . wrested inspiration from

cracked concrete. Here is what I'm currently working on, just the beginnings. I haven't been in the studio for a couple of days. Happily, I was busy with Betsy and Joe yesterday. I don't know what happened to Thursday. . . did it occur? I don't remember it. Note that I am not using taped edges on this canvas, trying to keep anything of interest or any kind of material build-up away from the edges. I have marked roughly a 2-inch border, but only to keep the texture away from that area. Maybe this will solve the problem I mentioned the other day. My other thought is that on the next painting, I will use the tape until after the texture is applied, then remove it to paint. Only problem, I tend to apply texture throughout the entire process. I am so dim sometimes.

I can't wait to see this one finished. I also loved the colors in yesterday's photo. You are doing amazing things.

I love this one already. Wonder what it will look like when I see it again.

Miki: Thanks. I can't wait to see it finished, either. I'm glad to hear your injury is perhaps not as serious as it could have been. Are you able to make art? That's what matters, right?

Seth: Thanks. You and I are both waiting to see how it will look.
