Well, its that time of year again. Every year, I transition from painting to life guarding in the summer, and its now summer. This change is always a challenge for me. I don't like putting my brushes away each spring. I always tell myself that I'll keep painting in the summer, but that never works. When I get home from work, I'm tired, and I haven't seen my family, and I feel selfish going to my studio to paint. But I do find time to keep working - its just not creating new work. This print below, it a good example. I painted this a while ago, and I had almost forgotten about it. Then someone thought it would look great in their newly remodeled bathroom. So I scanned it, corrected all the values and colors in photoshop, did some test prints to make sure it matched the original, and printed it out for its new home. I think it looks great. And it is a perfect print for me to transition with into this year. For the next few months, I'll be guarding the line that these flags make - keeping the swimmers in their areas, and their heads above water.
