Time to update

It was a very busy end-of-Summer and I wish I could say it was all related to art but sadly, it was just work. Because of that, I have been in a funk, thinking about future endeavors with what pays the bills and just trying to fit making and promoting work in between it all.

There are several video projects that I am in the middle of, photographing some random ideas just to make me happy and today, I began a self-portrait painting. I think the painting is more to get out of my head for a bit. It will be interesting to see what I end up with. I don't have a background in painting, but modeling for painting classes for years have helped me pick up some things.

Next week, I will be modeling with a painter who has the face of Zeus. I know I will shoot a roll of film of just his face. It is beautiful. Not sure what I will do with the 2 of us that I haven't already said.

Most importantly, Wednesday, November 3, from 5pm to midnight, is the exhibition of Ray Johnson's A Book About Death, which I have a piece in. I will be doing a living statue performance as well that I am looking forward to.

Well, I am getting back to this painting. I am so into the process!
