bison studies



It turns out that the people who moved in downstairs don’t deserve felt on the bottom of our chair-legs.  These complete jack asses need a rise and shine alarm at 6 am complete with hammers and screams from yours truly.  This must be their first apartment and stand in for dorm living.  I have to get out of town or find a more mature apartment complex fast.  I started painting on the porch because it has been reasonably cooler this week, it was great.  I learned that the neighbors are really happy not knowing how to play the guitar loudly and smoking cigarettes that are laced with drano. It’s fine, I burned some incense and  blasted them out with actual music and realized once again why I like to paint.  I really like to paint even though I know and I’ve been told by others that it’s really not my forte.  That’s fine.  It’s relaxing and I need that-

America-I’m a pissed native-the perspective is a little off but I’m not working on her anymore.  She’s androgynous and scarred – I’m obsessed with bison-that’s next

the grizzly-still in progress

This is what the grizzly is turning into.  I’m feeling a skyline on the top-but of course that’s subject to change.  It’s nice to see my work in stages of incompleteness.  There is a lot of time in between posts but that’s because these things take a long time.  In the age of immediate communication-instant art, instant gratification-this is probably the lowest tech work I could be doing.  On with the old-I’ll be writing letters from now on and scrap-booking in lieu of the blog.
