The Trapped In series is going smoothly. I'm going to start the next three of the series tomorrow evening. Right now I'm starting as many canvases as I can and just working them all up to between half to three quarters done. It's nice to work several canvases up together. It's the best way I've found to produce a solid body of work that hangs really well together. I look at painting exhibits like LPs for musicians. A band or performer cuts a record and they try to make all the songs fit together, sometimes the whole album tells a story or at least carries a mood. I look at painting exhibits like that. I try to have all the paintings tie into each other. I do have a few disparate ones here and there, but I'm sure I'll tie them in before April or I'll just hold back on hanging them.
