This is what it looks like this week in Philadelphia. My studio is on the second floor of a building without air conditioning. So I've moved lots of my drawing supplies to my office downtown. I'll be working on smaller drawings while I wait for the heat to break. I'm just afraid that won't be until September.

new large work

Trying to figure out the best way to inexpensively frame these new larger pieces. I never want to confine the marks, This is one in a series.

Working on a series of new drawings. These are the some of the objects that are defining the landscape. I'm drawing at home and downtown lately because the art studio is inhospitable. I can get alot more work done when I don;t drip sweat on the paper.

I'm hoping to have a dozen drawings completed by end of next week. They are coming along well. They use the cosmic strings approach.

My first day in the studio in weeks. I spent most of the time just cleaning up the dirt that covers the place when the BIG fans go on. The fans ran all day while I was there. I cleaned, organized some work.

I unwrapped some framed pieces that had come back from the All About Trees show; looking for where they could reside next. I drank so much water one would think I would float away. I have a thermometer to check the temp so I don't become oblivious and forget to hydrate.

heat

As you may have noticed there was a flurry if activity at the end of May. But June has been too HOT to work. I have tried to be in my studio. I just can't do it. Last weekend I went in to show some work to another artist and you just couldn't be in the space. It was 80 degrees inside at 8 am and I'm on the second floor.

Don't be fooled by the lows... that's with 80 percent humidity.

I just can't work in that heat. I sweat on the paper. Ick. And the humidity curls everything up.

new large work

A quick shot of a group of horizontal drawings. Two of the drawings are from the winter and a new series of spring drawings was started before I got sick. I haven't been able to get into the studio for over two weeks. I had this thing that kept me in bed. March blew by and April hasn't been nearly as productive as I had hoped.
