my show at Loose Threads Boutique is in TEN DAYS. which means i hang in less than that. unfortunately, i've been thinking about what i'm going to wear more than what i'm going to show. great way to look at things... probably NOT.

i have SO MUCH to choose from. Four years of stuff from Arcadia. I don't know how to go about this. The fact that they'll be on sale is keeping me from choosing my favorites. This is a shop, not a gallery. this isn't school. i get the feeling people want to buy art with bright colors and recognizable things. i haven't painted recognizable things in such a long time... so long that i don't really feel connected to those paintings anymore. i dont really feel anything when i look at them.

i also have about 100 paintings at my grandparents' house that i haven't even looked at yet. maybe i'll just lay everything i like out and let everyone else choose.

can i do that with my real life too?

"i steer clear of definitions. i don't know what i want. i am inconsistent, non-committal, passive; i like the indefinite, the boundless; i like continual uncertainty." -gerhard richter

this used to be my favorite quote. it made sense for a long time. in art, in relationships, in living. i'm starting to realize i deserve better. from myself and from others.

i contacted 4 different places to either show art in the area, or to teach art in the area. summer's almost over. summer job's almost over. no more excuses.

i do have a show next month with a first friday opening. I'm excited. It's at Loose Threads Boutique in Bethlehem.

swear i spent hours on this

this might be one of those paintings that doesnt get any better no matter how much time i spend with it or how much time i spend away from it.

i love discovering paint on the bottom of my feet.

oil paint + turpenoid + bleach = fizz fun

oil paint + turpenoid + bleach = headache

oil paint + turpenoid + bleach = something new.

today steph & i went to the banana factory. it was great to walk around and look at art. inspiring. made me miss the space i had to paint in at arcadia. made me miss any kind of community, especially one including artists. and made me miss having nothing to do but think, read, talk, and create.

i need to move.

i haven't been working on my self portrait.

i almost got scammed out of $600 and a painting on etsy today. it would have been really cool if it was an actual sale though.

maybe i'll paint my bedroom while i wait for this new painting to dry and for it to get dark enough out to continue my self portrait.

i think this was probably more exciting to see in person, accidentally, while driving to ziti night with WPP loves. but i'll share them anyway.

Tiësto feat. Tegan & Sara - Feel It In My Bones

i wish this video was cooler, cause i cant stop listening to the song... it'd still be cool to live in those green things. except blue.
