the new large painting

I just read a comment that someone left a week or so ago and I didn't know as I am not used to someone leaving a comment. I am glad to know that someone might be reading. It was an anonymous post which is to bad but bring it on I totally respect anonymity.

I don't know what is going on but I've been searching blogs a little that past couple of days and I am clicking on art blogs pretty exclusively. I don't want to jinx it...some of them aren't for me but at least I'm seeing art blogs. I've searched a bit in the past and found it difficult to find them. You would think it would be easy but It always seemed to go nowhere.

Hello. So I am working on my new large painting and it is going well but I am asking myself the same old questions, negative questions. Well not really questions but blanket statements. It is not such a loud voice because I can see that they are good...but so big, really practical. I am going to have to figure out how to get these seen when I am ready. The ideal is the studio visit.

I really want to say something worth while about painting. I am lucky to be in the process of making a new body of work that is totally new in feeling and I think my best work. How convenient at fifty to be making large energy consuming work. It is not fun getting up on the ladder but I do it if I can't throw the paint where I want it or reach to make the mark I want. This could be my prime I guess regarding work...I am peaking, can't think of anything that I could do...I guess I will have to think of something won't I?? Very lucky...all of this means that I am loving the work.


  1. Hi, it's Pat (McGuire) Price. Remember me? I left you an email weeks ago and you never responded so I commented on one of your blogs as anonymous hoping you would respond to that. I got your email address from your contact info.

  2. Is this the Pat McGuire that I once worked with in the eighties? In any event I did not get the email that I know of, and I thank you for checking out the blog.

  3. The one and only. My email is Email me. I found you on facebook. My friends in Florida talked me into the facebook thing. I put your name in when I first joined w/o any luck. I tried it again for the hell of it in January and there you were. I was so excited. I started reading your blog. A lot of the things you were saying brought you back to me. I often think of you w/fond memories. Email me, I would love to hear from you. Pat
