First Post of 2009!

So lets see.
Not a lot happened since my last blog.
I did take some days off to just hang out, which was really nice.

I started back to getting work yesterday, and I feel really good about it.
I began the paintings for the Surface Gallery, in Bakersfield, for my show in June.

I also started some new paintings for the Fact and Fancy Gallery in Brooklyn.

I am having a hard time deciding on what to paint.
I know what I am painting for Fact and Fancy, but I am relatively clueless about Surface. I have several ideas, but nothings seems cohesive. Sometimes I feel so schizophrenic when it comes to my ideas for paintings. I feel all over the place...
Michael says to just go for it. Just paint what I want without thinking about it too much.
Maybe I will. See what happens.

Last night while browsing Flickr I came across these two blogs that I found really inspiring.
The first is Obsessive Consumption. A daily drawing of something she bought that day. I love this. So much. She also lives in Portland, and that makes me happy.

The other one I found is My Love for You is a Stampede of Horses. Some amazing artists to check out. Sigh. So many amazing artists. I got lost there for quite some time.

Well, I hope everyone is having a good start to the New Year. So far so good here.
A little over fourth months to go...

Like Michael says just go for it.
I know easier said than done.
But before you know it, things will start clicking and you will be on your way...

Good luck with both shows!!!

I will have to check out those blogs while waiting for the paint to dry.:)
