Busy: Monkeying around with my pal Photoshop. I'm enjoying trying for a 1950's style with a modern edge. The joys of the brush pen on paper are promising.
Reading: 'Remarkable Creatures' by Tracy Chevalier. Could scarcely put it down, what with the dinosaurs and eternity at the seaside and all.
Also reading: 'The Diaries of Andy Warhol'. I still can't figure out how a shoe illustrator managed to buy a 4 story townhouse on the upper east side. He actually lost money doing paintings for the first few years. It's interesting to see the relentless work ethic and struggles to keep making art. The amazing originality of thought is so interesting. I don't recall any of the other NYC painters who were smart enough to do any writing... or had any ideas worth writing down.
Gardening: Major makeover in the backyard... coming soon.
