Studio New, Phase 3: 2nd and wainscoat

Took off Monday (my 31st birthday) to push forward on getting the studio painted. I managed, from about 9:15 to 4:30, to get a second coat on the ceiling and walls, and a nice light dove grey on the wainscoating (really just a chair rail, but I painted it as if it was a wainscoating).

Check out the beautiful texture of the side-lit wall in the second my estimation, drywall doesn't have anything on plaster as far as sensuousness; I really like the look of plaster walls (most of the time). This photo also shows the windows before I removed the painter's tape.

The next step is to vacuum the floor, mop it if it needs it, and then put down a coat or two of battleship grey floor paint...then I'll be ready to move in. These are all the same colors I have in the current studio, and I really came to like them. Here is the photographic evidence:


Studio New, Phase 2: 1st coat

Here, finally, despite lack of internet access at home (a pox on you Cavalier Telephone!), are those promised pictures of phase 2: 1st coat of paint. And thank you, Tim Moyer, for your help and conversation, it was much appreciated.

Next, phase 3: 2nd coat. This is riveting, no?


Artblog review!

Libby Rosof, of Fallon and Rosof fame (read: Artblog, etc.) did a really great review of my show at Green Line Art Projects; go here to read it:

Thanks again to Douglas Witmer ( ) who invited me in the first place.


Kind words from Matthews the Younger

Here is a post with some very kind words from Mr. Rob Matthews, and some ad hoc titles based on Jerry Lee Lewis song titles. I like it:

Studio New, Phase 1: Patching

Began patching and prepping to paint in my new, larger studio, this past Monday evening. Here is some photographic evidence from this morning around 6:15. There was some really nice light coming through the window, so I tried capturing some of it. I basically installed some scraps of drywall I had sitting around to two gaps in the plaster (near the corners on the window-side wall), then patched all the cracks and nail-holes in the walls and ceilings. I may need to add some more drywall in the gaps, since the plaster is so thick...and maybe even screw a separate piece on top, if the cutting is too tedious. Next phase will (Lord willing) be happening next Monday evening: Painting the Ceiling.
