Stackability

We live in a world of stacks - I have so many stacks - I think because I have spread my artlife out into 750 square feet.  Seth Apter is posting an interesting project on his blog.  Artists, of all kinds, are encouraged to blog about a photo of their favorite 'stack and let Seth know the post link and he will include it in his "Stack Project" blogpost. 

I thought it would be fun to join in.  These are many, but not all, of the unframed artworks that have been lounging here and there in the studio. I like to hold onto them for awhile, it's like looking back through a journal.  I can tell you what was going on in my life with each one at the time it was painted.  My paintings are such a connection to my history.   I couldn't give you exact dates, even by year (most have the date on the back), but I can tell you what I was involved in emotionally and spiritually at the time.  Do you have a stack?  You should share it. You should also look at the different and varying stacks posted on Seth's blog.

Thanks for stopping by, Jill, Martha and Dianne. Most all of these paintings have been the subject of a blog post over the last several years.

The edges of your paintings make a colorful stack!! Oh, how I would like to see what is on the front of these paintings. I think, as artists, we are doomed to always have stacks around us.

Happy stacking from another fellow Kansan. Only my feet seem to be planted here. Sorry I'm late arriving, but I'm determined to see all the stacks by the end of today. As for your stack, I love the personal feelings you have instilled in this post. Wonderful that you can connect each of these to something you were working on at the time.
