It’s a long story, but this month I’ll be moving to the next door apartment. This is weird and also convenient. So now I’ve got six months of rental time to find a permanent condo or something, hopefully.
Things noticed so far during the move

- Too many goddamned paintings
- The paint-catcher canvas what saved me from many rental fees and fines
Here are two fairly recent exhibition photos:

Here are some abstract paintings that have been in progress for a while.

Added some additional differences between the middle and outer pieces. Added a weird blue deletion of the central head, ala the artwork for Iron Maiden’s “Can I Play with Madness”.
The situation becomes more complicated.

Painting progress keeps on and on. The darker pinks are influenced by looking too much at the great paintings of Philip Guston. March 15, 2009

I’ve added some red and some pink. Red’s a fine color.
Still trying to figure out what to do with the background.
