I got some more work done on my painting. Here's me, my muse, and ten pounds o' paint stuck to a canvas… I think I'll do another day or two of work on it, build a frame, and then dump painting for a while and focus on sculpture. Painting is really painful for me and I'm feeling kind of drained by it all and would rather do something else.

Oh and if I didn't mention before, I think I said something about how I mix my own polymers, so the paints I use sometimes have unusual chemical characteristics (like they'll be gelatinous, or dry internally at different speeds so they bubble and change shape, etc.). I also mix in stuff from around the house to help me stay focussed on what I'm doing; for example, in this painting I added spices and foodstuffs (vanilla, caramel, hot pepper, crushed berries, and so on) to the paint so I'd be able to remember more clearly who I was working on at the time. Anyway, another couple days and I'm done.
Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
