From the Studio: Pismo Series Update

It’s been a little while since I have posted an update on the progress of the Pismo Series… and the reason for that is, quite frankly, since my return from my artist retreat in August, there really hasn’t been much progress.

I have experienced several health issues over the past couple of months that have prevented me from spending time in the studio… which, as you can imagine, has been a real issue for me.

I am happy to say, that there has – at last – been enough improvement in regards to my health that I have finally been able to start spending time in my studio again.

For the past two weeks, I have been able to start spending gradually increased time in the studio, first by determining which letters have been completed: A, C, L, R, T (final touches were completed on 10/31/2019) and V.

Of the Pismo pictures I have started during my vacation at Harveys Lake and the Artist retreat this summer, I have decided to re-do most of them. So I can honestly say that only my re-do of Pismo 5 (E) will continue to be worked on, which leaves 19 Pismo Series pictures to prep and complete.

So, at the end of last week, I started prepping enough paper to complete the series. The paper comes in a 30×22 sheet and it needs to be trimmed down to 20×20. Then I penciled in the borders and added the letters. Once all 19 pieces were completed, I spent the last couple of days inking the letters and filling in the borders (Basil was so happy that I am able to work in the studio once again):

I have a couple of ideas on how to solve the design problems that I have been experiencing over the past year and am hoping that this new inspiration is the answer that I have been looking for and that from this point, the project will be not only back on track, but progresses much more smoother going forward. Just because I have not been able to work in the studio, it doesn’t mean that any internal work on the project has stalled 🙂

For the rest of this week, I will be experimenting with these new ideas and am hoping that I will have more to share soon!
