After hanging the Fragile Planets show, I crashed for a few days. When I got up, I began a new series of paintings.

Since moving into this studio about six months ago, I'd been dreaming of building a painting rack. This week I finally built it and, in my own mind at least, it's a thing of beauty. Simple, lightweight and strong, capable of holding various sizes of work safely and efficiently.
The paintings, which had been precariously piled atop one another against the far wall of the studio, are now gently organized. This sort of thing really does increase my happiness in the studio.
