Open Studio Time at the Luminary

T. Renner, "Lee Young," 2008, ink over newspaper tracing on paper, 4" x 6".

Today I was finally able to take advantage of open studio time at the The Luminary Center for the Arts, right across the street from Tower Grove Park at Kingshighway at Reeber.

T. Renner, "Luminary Two" (detail), 2008, acrylic on paper, 17" x 11".

It sure was nice to be able to have lots of room to work. My home studio has room for my drawing table and me...

T. Renner, "Luminary One" (detail), 2008, acrylic on paper, 17" x 11."

At the Luminary I was able to work on an 18" x 24" canvas (part of the "Birth of the Cool" series) and a 3' x 4' plywood panel and still have more than enough room to work on some pen and ink drawings (pen and ink over tracings, to be exact) and a bunch of quick acrylic on paper paintings, both 5" x 7" and 11" x 17".

T. Renner, "Luminary Four" (detail), 2008, acrylic on paper, 17" x 11".

The Luminary is a very cool space, and I look forward to working there a lot in the future.

T. Renner, "For Truman Capote," 2008, ink and acrylic on paper, 6" x 4".

NOTE: "Luminary One, Two, & Four" are for sale for $75 each, shipping not included. "For Truman Capote" and "Lee Young" are not for sale at the moment.
