Admittedly I don't feel like I got a bunch done today, but then I look around and I definitely did. Being in the studio has felt bothersome to me recently. Everything is so messy and so disorganized. I can't help but think that this is one of the major reasons that I have had trouble keeping up with studio work I have lined up for myself. It is one thing to work on impulsive projects, but the projects that I have to do require a work atmosphere. The studio has not been that. It hasn't even really been a place that I have felt comfortable enough to live in, which, due to the fact that it is where my living room should be, has made for some difficulties. Today I was in the mood to fix it though, and it feels very good right now.
I received great news from a couple friends this weekend on getting into shows. It was good to hear because it made me want a little bit more out of my own art. I haven't applied to very many shows in a while, just the one with my friend Julia and a couple small gallery spots. I need to get back at it. I would like to have a couple shows in the next 2 years. However, today I think I will bask in the glory that is finishing the monthly Throw Down poster on time for once.
