New Work

I spent some time in the studio today because I knew you’d be expecting to see new work from me. Have you seen my new studio? It’s fabulous. I don’t know how I got along without it before.


Like other artists, I go through productive periods and fallow periods. Sometimes I need time off from painting to let new ideas come in. At the moment I’m in an experimental period where I’m trying out new techniques and ideas. Here’s what I did today:

Painting 1

Painting 2

I’m at the very beginning of creating a new body of work. I’m struggling with conceptual issues as well as practical issues, like size. I want to work big, but big becomes a problem when I have to take the paintings anywhere. Do I limit the size of my paintings to what will fit in my car? That seems kind of arbitrary. But I’m not keen on the idea of renting trucks, either.



  1. Hi Cassie – I enjoyed reading all your blogs – you have a lot going for you – and a lot going on…keep up the good work!

  2. Cassie,
    You’ve got me hooked on your blog. Your productivity is impressive (even if it goes in cycles). I enjoy the peek at your inner world (although I’m not into cats or vegetarianism; observations on hexagons were more interesting to me). Your studio looks fabulous. I’m jealous.

  3. What??? Someone is reading this blog? Well, thank you, Judy. I’m honored that you’re taking the time to read this stuff. My intent is to mostly write about art stuff, but then I start obsessing about something else and feel compelled to write about that, too. Maybe you can just skip those posts. It’s hard to separate it out, because everything in my life affects my art, and my art affects everything in my life.
