Here are pics of the latest in the Space Loop series of modern paintings, produced on Thursday, April 10 and Friday, April 11.

SL0612CX10 (10 inches square; acrylic on canvas)
The chartreuse piece is an alternate design of the Space Loop series, as noted in my previous post. Felt like I had to paint it anyway, if only as an experiment. It’s now available for sale in the online art store.
Since then, I have been developing a new set of sketches involving a painting I made four years ago, called Süfnex. I look forward to revealing those sketches within the next few days.
I’ve also been brainstorming titles for new work, whether they’re prints, paintings, etc. Some names: Phratophir, Biyuvial, Ostroddol, Etcholxen, Exubeix. There are others, but I will spare you of them! The Basque language is particularly fascinating, and ripe with points of inspiration, as demonstrated by the newspaper Berria.
Otherwise, I have been doing quite a bit of gardening lately, before the Arizona sun increases the degree of difficulty on such activity. Gardening is much like painting, I have found, because it’s very meditative. I started a compost pile in late December, and I look forward to starting a raised garden this summer.
