Switching gears from the bright works on paper of Friday night, I turned my garage into a spray booth today, and made the spray-painted painting, below (acrylic and spray paint on canvas, 30" H x 20" W".
I haven't used spray-paint in my paintings in a while, years in fact, because the fumes are so noxious in my studio, even wearing a respirator, running two box fans, and with the door to the outside opened. But I can't get these terrific flat patterns any other way!
So today I opened the two garage windows, backed the car into the driveway, and started spraying! It seems to work out fine, fume-wise. Obviously the whole process would be easier if I could just wait until a sunny spring day and work outdoors, but I'm way too impatient to wait three months for that.
Also I spray-painted designs onto sheer white fabric today, and my next step is to cut them up and collage them onto canvas.
Starting tomorrow I'll be teaching five days a week for the next 14 weeks, so I probably won't be able to continue to be this prolific. I think it was anticipation of this new schedule that I was so determined to get a lot done this weekend!
