a new beginning / by Philip Tarlow

2:04 PM: today is a stormy day with fair to poor light. a perfect opportunity to unstretch the late summer series paintings from their masonite backed stretcher bars onto fresh ones with no backing. that makes them much lighter and more easily transported over to the house, so that they can be hung and evaluated. then, as you see here, i'll cut fresh canvas to stretch onto the now available stretcher bars with hard surfaces, to begin 3-4 new late summer paintings.

as well i shot a few more details of the final version of lucien eclipse, which i'm posting below.
