Today, I very much wanted to go do retail therapy instead of working in my studio - I’ve become aware that I am increasingly angry, and also easily saddened - these days it is always all about you know who on tv, radio and social media and it gets to me. Somehow though I managed to hang in there, and just like you always hear, am glad I showed up. All that energy erupted after several very staid hours, and now I’m in the closing stage of this painting. I can’t decide if I should call it “Pussy Got Pissed” or “A Black Cat Crossed His Path.” Maybe both. 24"x24", mixed media: sumi ink, charcoal, biro, sticks, latex gloves, acrylic paint and various scraping tools.
