So. One month of 2012 is done already. Not exactly one of my better ones, though I’m slowly coming to accept that maybe January will always suck.
Anyhow, January’s done, so February’s a (minor) fresh start, right? Lots happening artwise, as is often the case. There’s a whole raft of metalflake paintings that will hopefully be finished soon. Including a piece I called “For a Dancer” (after the Jackson Browne song of the same name):
What you’re seeing here is a mockup, of course. I first envisioned this painting back in August after one of those life-changing late-night conversations. But when I mocked up the whole thing up tonight, I have to admit I was taken aback just a bit. This is a very personal piece, so it’s gratifying to see the emotional impact it has.
“I don’t remember losing track of you,
You were always dancing in and out of view,
I must have thought you’d always be around.”
Moving on to the next item on the agenda, I’m sharing this from Franziska San Pedro’s blog, entitled “How The Internet Can Change Your Life.” Interesting reading.
And finally, I’ve posted a couple new t-shirt designs to my RedBubble store just in time for Valentine’s Day:
Carry on, then.
Souvenir of (duh) a trip to L.A. in 2004. Picked it up at LAX on the way back to Vancouver.
It occurs to me that the number of blog posts this year will obviously be jumping pretty drastically.
