Yesterday was not good.
I didn't sleep very well the night before...too many things going on inside my head.
Money, relationships, home, art...blah blah blah.
So the next day I was in a pretty bad funk all day....
Well, until I caught Chloe sleeping on the bed with most of her tongue hanging out :)
She made me laugh, and put me in a better mood. I'm so glad we decided to get a dog, and I am so glad we got her. She really makes a difference.
Anyway, my self portrait paintings are still not dry. Which means that I cannot spray them with the finishing varnish, which means that I cannot put a layer of beeswax on them...which means they are not done yet.
In the mean time I have been trying to improve my photos a little bit.
I tried printing yesterday, but that was bust. There is nothing more frustrating than when you are in a bad mood, and the art you are trying to make is also bad. I just couldn't get a good print, and it was really upsetting...mostly because the paper is so expensive and every time you mess up it's like throwing $2.00 away. I think I am going to try to make some books, or something out of the bad prints. I just hate throwing them away...
Let's see...oh yeah! I found out about this really cool website called Paper And Stitch.
It's $45.00 for a month, and it's curated...but I think it's really promising. I submitted my work and will be one of the artists from mid November to mid December!
So, we'll see how that goes :)
Anyway, I gots some works to get dones.
Have a great day peeps.
