The past year has been a cacophony of different series in the studio. There were the large-scale forest drawings, the modest pastels of landscapes, drawings and etchings of fabric, carborundum prints, not to mention collages; and I am only just beginning to piece it all together and photograph it all. Most of these projects have come and gone, but this series of paintings that I began last February has recently found new life.
The work is all about the paint which is new for me. My found materials have an outlet in my other series of smaller prints and collages. These paintings are more raw, sometimes awkward, and a definite push to explore new territory in my work. This is the first of the group completed last spring. I'll be uploading the rest during the next few weeks as I continue to work on them in the studio. Be sure to stop by and check out the developments.

|Peter Callas' pottery in the gallery window|
The opening reception for Hot Environment and the Firmament Series was last night. It was a fantastic night and the reception of the work was positive. I had a chance to meet and talk with many people in attendance. Thanks for making the trip out. If you haven't had a chance to see the show yet, it is on display until November 3rd at the Vessels Gallery.

|Untitled; caborundum print; 11 x 20" (paper); 2013|
The plate is created by mixing the carborundum grit with adhesive and then applying it to a plexi plate. While the adhesive is wet, the carborundum can be manipulated to create an image. The resulting plate is then loaded with ink, wiped and printed much like an etching plate. This process is much like painting and I find the transition between the two media easy and exciting. Check back for a portfolio of the entire series to date!
