Sometimes it works to spend time "playing" in your closet, trying on newer pieces of clothing with old favorites and coming up with different combinations. You often find you have all kinds of "new" outfits and you don't need to buy anything that's actually new.
It turns out the same activity can be productive in the studio! I've been creating paintings in series recently, and today I got the idea to go through some of my older works on paper and see what went together. I turned my work tables end to end to give lots of space, and spread out everything I had that wasn't part of a definite series already.
I discovered all these great combinations that I never would have thought of before! Some paintings were made a few days ago, some a few months ago, and I even found some that had been sitting around for years. But these newly discovered groupings look fresh and unexpected to my eye when I see them together!
Next I'm going to mount the various groupings on the cradled boards I have ordered. Will post pictures ASAP.
