Red Square, watercolor and pencil on paper, 6"x6" 12/15/18
This is a collection of 46 watercolor paintings, all different, made in sequence on the days of December 16th and 17th, 2018, as an exploration of some ideas about both serial art and the authority and reliability of an artist's description of their own work and working processes.

Amazing!!! Are these for sale?

I haven't thought much about whether or how to sell 'em yet. Partly it's a question of whether I'd be okay with parting them out; while I've done a lot of painting in short series where each painting feels reasonable standing alone, this feels more like a unit to me, a cohesive whole. I dunno, I'm still chewing on it!

it would be interesting to see these laid out in a 7x7 square (though you'd have 3 blank spaces...).

I might have to make some more red squares for you.

No. 35 made me laugh and I spent quite a while on No. 38, thank you for sharing these.
