Over the weekend I worked a lot on the new, as yet unnamed, painting. I have most of the underpainting done and it looks like an easter basket exploded all over it. So much pastel! But the final colors will be bolder. 

I saw Mastry, the Kerry James Marshall retrospective at the MCA last week. It was fantastic, of course. I ended up taking closeups of a lot of the paintings -- of underpainting, of where realism becomes abstraction, different kinds of brushstrokes. He continues to be an inspiration.

Perhaps I'll call it Jammie Dodgers.
