Words fade as I find new language in thinning and polymerizing. What I'd always avoided: the drawn out drying times of oil painting, slowness and calculation, system 2 thinking. This is creeping into my work, perhaps into my career as well. Last week I said no to a show invitation, mostly for system 2 reasons. Not necessarily delayed gratification, but oil must dry and one must wait.
Currently at the Davis Gallery summer show I have four new oil paintings. These will be on view thru August 8th. Bill Davis' summer group exhibitions are often his best shows of the year for seeing all Davis artists' works on display in one of Austin's best spaces.
