ONE MOMENT PLEASE



Shack-werks have taken over the fickle sloth brain-bone and steered it in an obsessional direction. I am either going to finish or ruin the current relic over the next day or two... maybe both. Luckily there's another one in the on-deck circle.

the shit fact is that I have to work at beige, but I really, really, really want to work on this fucking relic. It is chafing. I may go to the studio at lunch and never look back.

for this I would surely be fired.

As Boston would say...Don't Look Back. Sounds like you're at an exciting place in the shack.

I am desperate for the shack too, although the relics are on hold while I unpack.

Damn the shit facts. It just slays me that you have to deal with the beige, I mean CAN'T A GIRL JUST LIVE?!?! AAAAARGUE!

Also sorry, I must badger you again, but can I see the relics live and up personal?

oh slothers, i was so hoping that a new shiny relic would be awaiting my eyes this morn! but i understand. yes, the beige is a stinker. i did not go to the shack yesterday nor can i go tonight. sadness. but - sometimes the days in between can reveal something. especially when there is relic drama.

i am sending the good-relic vibes sloth. can you feel them?

Thank you kind PD, FB, Corny... you are the reason I didn't throw myself under the wheels of a truck this sunshiny a.m. There was a perfect opportunity, and that giddy & terrifying, almost irresistable urge.

Thank you for not stepping under the truck, SLoth!! We need you here!
That point of being on the verge of ruining or finishing a relic is my very favorite point--despite the difficulty of it. It is exciting. The damn beige gets in the way, but maybe when you get back there--it all be clear to you.

that's interesting PD - i have a complete and total loathing for the intense drama of the finishing, complete paranoia. It's funny. For me, my best work usually is a pretty straight shot - easy-ish sailing. but it doesn't happen often. sigh.

by the way sloth, i went back into that sad relic i was talking about on your suggestion. it was very liberating. very smear-centric. i don't know what to make of it but it's been awhile since i've allowed myself the luxury of going back in. and it was super fun!

I know it is intense, but it makes me feel really alive. Corny, but true. (not to be confused with Corncub)

i do like-a the risk - i give you that. it's a major draw for me in regards to relic making. i just hate when i get all desperate to fix something and all the doors close down into badness. it happens all to often. part of the process i guess.

yeah, i hate when it gets bad--that's true. I also love it when there is a feeling of unending work in the studio. You know, lots of needy paintings that you think about when you're not there.

tons of actual work at beige today... hard to blog :(

I am trying to let the painting process guide; am attempting to experiment & take more risks, but I live in fear of the badness. Must stomp out fear.

lacing up my hob-nailed boots now...

I hope your new relic takes me under the water. An enchanting world dwells beneath.

If you dont post a photo on your blog of Dea then I will, she is a cuty! Once hell week is over I'm giving it another go!!!

Good luck and thanks Regi. The current relic exists not so much underwater as in a stormy green miasma. The critters in this painting laid a bunch of eggs yesterday, but they were oversized and must be sent to the background somehow. I will be attempting to do so tonight. Formal problems... ugh!

Dea is certainly a doll; I'll look for the post. I rarely post photos of actual reality, as you may have noticed. LogBlog is an escape portal.

BTW, friend Fritz's band Maxi Geil & Playcolt will be playing at NorthSix this Sunday, "in conjunction with the Armory Show" somehow. Whatevs, should be a fun show.
