This is art I bought from artist Selma Dronkers who also makes drawings. I finally reached my goal for #artistsupportpledge Her studio practice is in the Netherlands. I'm so happy to contribute to the effort that has stimulated a worldwide creative economy. This effort began to support artists and makers around the world who have had a very difficult time sustaining earning and maintaining their practices.

I’ve been very busy end of year in my studio. Finally after all of the renovations that ran from February then stopped for on and off for a bit in March to September. (COVID) Finally finished in September. Not everything is back in place but my work area is absolutely awesome. I still have to move this bank of drawers but that won’t happen until March when I get my new air conditioner installed.   

The counter top is glass, an old deli case front. It weighs about 400 lbs. and is 9 ft long.

I’m excited to announce my year-long project for 2021 — a small single-sheet artist book/zine collection. This collection will be available to all patrons including the $3/month Studio Journal level. It’s like buying me a cup of coffee each month. If you join in January you will get the full set of twelve.

Inspired by numerous single sheet artist's books out in the universe, I have decided to make works that can be digitally shared with my patrons and collectors.

Buy me a cup of coffee each mont get an artists book.

Sharing the work of Odili Donald Odita

I have always loved colorfield paintings, geometrics, and minimalism. I haven't even finished reading this article but wanted to share it because I find this work very interesting. Fresh even after all the work that has come before it. You'll have to follow the link since I'm not willing to use images without permission.

Here is a statement from the artist:

I remember being in New York and all my friends would be talking about Jackson Pollack. As much as I appreciate his work and it’s place in history I was more interested in Lee Krasner. 
After Jackson’s death she took over his studio a place to make grand sized works. Make them she did.

It's great to be signing my catalogs and packing them up for shipping. I use Priority Mail regularly.

I'm pleased to support the USPS (United States Postal Service) and remind everyone to support our postal carriers and workers. Contact your representatives to speak out at the dismantling of this service. It delivers so many important packages, prescriptions, and government checks. The Postal Service employs a huge number of veterans. 

You know what to do. Contact your representatives, demand DeJoy be fired.

Support the USPS, Priority Mail Packages of 600 drawing catalogs.

Yep all six hundred drawings are included in this Catalog. Got the press proof bound book Friday and now making some image adjustments and found a couple things that we missed first time around. Doing a copyedit one more time for consistency. We expect to upload the revised files tonight or tomorrow latest. Then we'll wait for the new digital proof and go to press.
