The Paulie Report

You may have noticed that I haven't posted any new paintings on this blog for a damned long time. Believe me, it's not because I haven't been working - most of 2007 has been devoted to coming up with the follow-up series to "Circles and Stripes," but it's taken much longer than I had hoped. You know what they say: if it were easy, then everyone would do it.

The good news is that the new paintings are finally starting to flesh themselves out, and I'll be posting some of them as soon as they're shot. I've been lucky enough to have the use of a great studio in Brooklyn for a nice chunk of the summer (thanks, Don!).

I have to (and hate to) vacate the space in early August, though, and if anyone knows of a reasonably priced studio in Manhattan or Brooklyn (on the "L" would be best), please e-mail me at pcorio@nyc.rr.com.

In other news, I'm returning to the academy this fall after a long hiatus. I'll be teaching "2D Integrated Studio" in the Freshman Foundation department at Parsons (thanks, Dan!). A lot of the summer has been devoted to brushing up on the computer programs that are part of the course, preparing my syllabus, and practicing my whip-cracking.
