Made these small paintings on 3"x8" and 3"x6" wood blocks in late Feb and early March, which feels like a long time ago. They're in my Etsy shop for $50 including US shipping. I had brought them to the Madewell pop-up on 3/7, and imagined I'd sell more at spring/summer markets, but for now I will be regularly updating my online shop, and most work I post on instagram is also for sale by contacting me.
I had a boxful of wood rectangles cut to these lengths thinking of making more utensil paintings. I made some, but decided I could conclude that series, unless someone really wants a spoon or a knife or, as in one commission, a cheese planer. So I used these particular sizes of wood to experiment with shape compositions and color palettes on the limited space. Surprise, the more I make, the more ideas surface. I have lots of various wood pieces and small canvases all over the studio, so that will keep me going for awhile. I stretched some large (48-60") canvases too, so I could immediately feel productive and less anxious (the stapling helped). I had so many stretcher bars and a massive roll of canvas, all given to me over the past few years. The only thing I'll soon run out of is paint, so until I also run out of money, I can order more. Buying new jars and tubes of paint is a definite exercise in optimism.
