I caught a bad cold/flu thing (again!), and I’m trying to fight it off. It happened just after I finished King Baby, a few little watercolors, and those two big gouaches. At least I got some shit done first.
The biggest bummer of all was that I had to miss X last night. They played at Pappy & Harriet’s. I was way too sick to go, especially because they played outside. A perfect night for it, but I still would not have been able to stand through it. Hopefully, they will come back through town someday soon. I haven’t seen them play in over 30 years! I am OLD!
I’m keeping this short because I want to go back to bed very soon. Here are the new large gouaches
Mending Station, 2023. Gouache on Rives BFK, 30 x 22 inches:
Elephant Blouse, 2023. Gouache on Rives BFK, 22 x 30 inches:
And three watercolors I haven’t shown yet:
Cake Stand, 2023. Watercolor and pencil on paper, 7 x 5 inches:
Desirable Watercolor Painting, 2023. Watercolor on Arches, 10 x 7 inches:
Stupid Sharp Knives, 2023. Watercolor and gouache on Fabriano paper, 9 x 12 inches:
And above is a link to King Baby.
Any day, I’ll get word on Skowhegan. However, the chances of getting in are 3.5% which is fucking hella low. I do not expect to get in. Not at all, but a little part of me sure hopes to because I want it so, so bad. I will get word on VCCA this month as well, which has a much higher percentage rate, but it’s not an easy residency to get into either. I can only keep trying.
