Muddy Waters

“When you live in the dark for so long, you begin to love it. And it loves you back, and isn’t that the point? You think, the face turns to the shadows, and just as well. It accepts, it heals, it allows. But it also devours.”

Raymond Carver, Late Fragment


If you like here is some ‘Dark Ambient’ music that really needs to be listened to via good quality head phones. Also it is reasonably long at 27.35 minutes.

Need to start work soon

Time is moving quickly, at least faster than I am. September is not too far away and I haven’t started working on the exhibition pieces I need to produce for the show at the Milton Centre for the Arts. I am leaving it a bit late. The space is quite large and there are only about 5 or 6 of us selected to exhibit, which means at least five or so paintings of a reasonable size from each of us. I am hoping the others choose to go large so I can go small to save time.

The good news is that I have started putting together some words and begun to set up a studio space to work in. I haven’t done any drawing or painting for well over two years, so I am a little worried about my current capabilities to deliver  something worth hanging, or it could be me that ends up getting hung.
