I've written a lot of blogs so far and not nearly as many as millions of people but anyway, I've put a lot out there. I still don't know what the fascination is with me apart from the need to make my presence known. It really sounds so egotistical but it doesn't come from that place. Maybe desperate. I have to say I feel so lucky. Not for the fact that I have to drive my huge painting to Red Hook in the morning but I do feel lucky to have been accepted to this show and look forward to seeing one of my new paintings stretched for the first time. Even though it is a lot of work getting to and from for my fifty year old head that is. I've been driven my whole life and suddenly I'm driving myself from East Hampton to Red Hook Brooklyn, installing and then to the Upper West Side of Manhattan. I am certainly familiar with a lot of the ride, it's Red Hook that will be the adventure. Pity the fool. Anyway, did someone say coffee...
Hello. Yes back in the studio preparing for the morning, prepping canvas and actually dabbling with paint and enjoying myself. It has been a while since I've picked up a brush but it seems like just the right time to get back to work. the last paintings that I made were all large and took up my studio and now I have a new studio with three large panels stretched with canvas and nearly all prepped all very white. Like my studio in the city. I've done some good cleaning and painting so the walls look fresh and white.
I am without a printer so I've written out my google map which is important as I am on a road trip to Red Hook in the morning. I really like my paintings which is what I want to say when I thought of my blog. It feels like such a healthy thing. But seriously though the money I've spent to make all the art in my life so far is huge in comparison to the sales. I do wish that could turn around at some point.
I wrote a couple of sentences that some how disappeared. Oh well. Jamie Cullum, a great singer. Wow. At Monterrey.
Title for painting, "Blackheart"
