Unproductive Day

Today I have done little or nothing of note. I've been watching TV on the computer, catching up on programmes I missed because I was too busy getting attacked by a large group of youths with snowballs. Sounds funny, wasn't in the slightest. Especially when they opened my car doors and pelted me inside the car.

So I have managed to start a collage, and had a Lock, Stock and 2 Smoking Barrels moment when Josh doubted that I could paint on it. Very surreal. Had accents going and the lot.

So here it is so far, more pics to be posted as it progresses, or not as the cs may be. I seem to be starting a lot of things but not getting them finished at the mo. I think I'm not really sure how to finish them off. Plus they look halfway OK and I don't want to ruin them. Or they are really not very good and I can't raise the energy to finish them cos they're rubbish anyway. Confusion about my work abounds.

So today has been about chilling, sort of having a day off and resting my brain before cracking on again.

I think I may be in the realms of self justification of a lazy day. I must ponder.

Little bastards!

I don't think there's anything amiss with starting lots of things. It's all part of the process innit?

I read somewhere how our art work is like raising a child. At first it is a great idea and we can't wait to get started. (baby stage). Then it becomes more stubborn (adolescent stage)If we continue on we start to see it becoming the final product. (The Adult stage).

I am enjoying seeing your progression with these pieces and hearing your thoughts as you work.

Thanks, its good having the blog to discuss my ideas with, almost like having a friend who I can talk to and bounce ideas off. And then of course there are the real friends out there in the blogosphere, new and old, who help with ideas encouragement and projects that keep me focussed.
