East Austin Studio Tour 2012 – Day One

Today my friend Jill and I spent about 5 hours visiting all the painting studios (and more) at Pump Project, Pump Project Satellite, and the Bolm Road complex (which includes Big Medium, Pigoata Studios, and Bay6 Gallery and Studios). What an amazing amount of wonderful art, and as always, it's so fun to see old friends and meet new ones. See a gallery of photos from today's art outing.

How to Destroy (and Recover) a Painting in 10 (or so) Not-So-Easy Steps

“Mollycoddling the Collywobbles” | Oil on canvas | 18″ x 18″ | © 2012 Marilyn Fenn - This painting started out very differently than it ended up. In a month full of daily interruptions (far more then the usual tolerable level of daily interruptions), I had a hard time keeping the same frame of mind while I worked sporadically on this canvas.

An artist is not an isolated system. In order to survive he has to interact continuously with the world around him… Theoretically there are no limits to his involvement.
