Slow Progress

For those who are interested: painting progress

I got some more work done on the painting (and much to my surprise, I didn’t really eff it up yet). All that remains is to paint the tree in the foreground that droops into the right-hand side of the picture, and then to paint the water hyacinths at the bottom foreground.

For anyone interested, here is the painting as of tonight.


A message to the power elite:

How much “bad intelligence” do you get to use before we are justified in calling you “stupid”?

A brief update

Sunday, June 13th, 2004

Despite many familiar artifacts and personal effects, I realized this evening that I really do not feel at home here at all.

I started on making a painting though, at least. This is my first time painting with oils, so I’m not sure how well it will go. I’ve pretty much got the sunset/clouds finished, and laid the base for a reflective water surface, but nothing more. I haven’t really done much, but I haven’t fucked it up yet either, so that is a good start I guess.
