The Pearl Street Project
3-15-10

It's done! Actually it's been done for a week or so now but, here it is, the first painting of the Pearl Street Project.  I have so many good stories that need repeating from painting Chink, my closest neighbor.  If you see me, ask for one, I love telling them.  Chink couldn't believe I actually finished it, every time I chose to re-work an area, he'd get confused.... as if to think that once I put a layer of paint down, that was it for that spot.  When I worked back in to something, he's lecture me, saying that I "wasn't gaining anything today". And I would just let out a deep sigh and give him an evil look because honestly, sometimes that's how painting feels.
Good news, Chink introduced me to the next neighbors and they are both game, so I'll start on them soon.  It's so exciting when you hatch a plan and it actually starts to work!

  1. the best and most ingenious part of the painting is the upper right corner.

  2. Hi, Katie-
    My husband and I met you at the Hidden River Arts Festival in Brookfield Saturday...this painting reminded him so much of his dad. Thank you again for sharing your work, for being so open to people and the world around you. Positively inspiring!
