preparing new surfaces / by Philip Tarlow

6:43 pm: a sweet after dinner, post storm walk to spanish creek, which abuts our property to the north. the normally trickling creek was swollen and rushing with the spring snowmelt, and the light, after the cleansing rain was warm, clear. we feel energized in anticipation of tomorrow's all day meetings in edwards, a 3 hour drive. it will be a planning session in preparation for our fall pilot of actionlab360 in the 2 schools we've been working with this year.

12:40 PM: as my ongoing i-movie adventure continues and i wait my 5th tech support call in 2 days from apple, i'm about to re-stretch grey 23 to free up the 38x38" masonite backed stretcher bar for a companion piece painting to the fayum inspired painting in the grey series which you see here. it too will be based on a fayum prototype.
