It feels like everything in my life at the moment has a big, fat ‘work-in-progress’ tag on it. I’ve just moved into a new house, so a good chunk of my life is still in boxes and the wrong paint color is on the walls. My band has a record in the early stages of mixing. I’m in the process of trying to get into better shape and all that. So, at the moment, everything feels a little off-kilter. I’m not a huge fan of having things out there unfinished. An unfinished project really nags and eats away at me and slowly starts to drive me crazy. I like art because it has a nice definitive beginning and what makes the end great is that it happens when I say it happens. 🙂 I used to paint in oils way back when but I used to get really impatient with the time it took to finish plus the drying time of the canvas. It’s sort of funny now that I think about it, as all these cubicle works take way longer and they get erased at the end. Maybe I’ve grown as a person. Speaking of slow works-in-progress, here’s Manet!
Photobucket has disabled my account and is deleting my photos for exceeded bandwidth. This is such a massive pain, as I have everything from advertising banners to website backgrounds on there and they’re all gone. I’ve lost a lot of my work-in-progress photos but I still have all the finals. So, rather than be held hostage by them to upgrade their service, I’ll politely flip them the e-bird and be on my merry way. I apologize to anyone trying to read through the older posts for the utter lack of pictures. In the meantime, here’s a my newest work-in-progress, A Bar at the Folies-Bergere by Manet.
