This is my first August post. I have spent the last two weeks doing the social part of the artists' life and starting new projects. Last week I spent two days at the Kah Bang festival in Bangor, ME, where my friend Julie K Gray had some incredible work up. I met some fantastic people, made a few connections, and had a lot of fun providing support for one of my best friends. I also had an opening in Laconia, NH at The Studio which was the kick-off of Speakeasy Dining, the unveiling of what amounted to the largest painting I had ever finished, and a Walter Mitty music show. Since last week, I have been mulling over a new project, doing the legwork on a project whose final results I know not of, and slowly trying to finish this large scale commission that it now feels like I have been working on forever. Socially I have been grasping at straws trying to figure out why I feel a little off. Last night I forced myself to be quiet and work. I am not sure that that is what I want, but it may be what I need.
Enough of the painting of the interior of my head though. Lets get to the nitty gritty.
The following are three photos of the installation I did at the studio. This was by far the most people that I have drawn in the past ten years or so. I really got into the floating heads and a couple of the hands. Bodies still kind of bore me.
here. I make absolutely no qualms about being an awful photographer. I am just far too impatient to manage it.
More Partitions post or in the Billboards post.
There will be more to come soon. I am in a good spot right now. After a two month period where art felt like a job that was grueling and thankless, I am starting to feel the pull of the studio and solitude again. I have lived my life trying to reenact various dreams that I have had. Sometimes when I fall short of these dreams, I begin to wander and lost track of what it is that I do. Hopefully I am done wandering for a bit here again.
Talk to y'all soon.
