Art Diary: Week Ending 18th May

12/05/2013

A totally domesticated day and my wife and I were with various members of the family the entire length of it.

I had little time to paint today as I had to go out several times. I did however finish off both THE DANCE and HOMAGE TO PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN GUITARS.

I was out all morning and in the afternoon I started (on almost a whim) to repaint some of the lines on one of the SELF PORTRAIT IN A PINK DRESS variations. I also started to add symbols to the descending blocks in one as well as additional detailing.

My wife was taken ill during the night and I didn’t spend as much time in my studio as planned. I repainted the lines on a second SELF PORTRAIT IN A PINK DRESS painting plus some detailing – some of the detailing in this case was anarchic scumbling (for the want of a better word) using my paint rag. The only lines that are not redefined are the ones that will hold the words.

I also finished adding the symbols to the work I started yesterday.

I added symbols and reinforced the lines on another SELF PORTRAIT IN A PINK DRESS variation and also repainted most of the lines on the remaining one.

I had to go to town for June to get medicine etc. and when I got back only spent about an hour painting (adding symbols to one of the SELF PORTRAIT IN A PINK DRESS works) before going into my study to write. This hasn’t been a very good week for creating art works! However I did make an exceedingly tentative start on another story – this one has been washing around in my head for years.

18/05/2013

I spent the day in the garden although I did do a bit of writing very late in the day. I am so behind with my potting and a multitude of other gardening jobs that I may well spend all of next week in the garden (I often do during the week of the Chelsea Flow Shower) so I am signing off as an artist for a little while.

    I keep saying the same thing about tidying the house up. The trouble is I’ve got way too much other stuff I’d rather be doing…such as sleeping mainly.

    • Tidying the house isn’t too high up on my priority list either. Sleeping sounds good, sadly I’m not very good at doing that at night let alone any other time – something to aspire to I suppose.
