What I’m working on today!

Here’s my plan/what is happening with me:

I have been painting so much because I am submitting work to an art show, and I have never ever done an art show before, or displayed my art publicly anywhere. The deadline is midnight TONIGHT. I already have four pieces submitted and I’m working on three more today. Health-wise, today is really good, so that helps A LOT. I am going to clean my apartment, then spend all day painting until it is DONE. Then I am going to have a drink, watch a movie, and RELAX, which is not something I really do. Also I bought a plant today, I’m trying to pick a name for it. So that is cool also.

THIS IS NOT A DRILL: I posted my first new song video in over four months! That’s just bananas!

You can also download the song for free on my Bandcamp store! Neat!

I bought the new microphone that makes this video sound so nice with money donated through Patreon. If you’d like to become a patron, check it out!

This is so funny and cute and it has swears, and there’s a cat, so if you don’t watch this video I don’t know what you’re doing with your life.

“It seems that the more I tried to make my life about the pursuit of art, the more money controlled my life: collecting unemployment insurance, the humiliation of borrowing money from friends and family, tossing and turning at night while trying to figure out how to pay the rent. To survive I had to work hard jobs and afterwards I’d feel too tired and too stressed to paint. It’s very hard to create under those circumstances. Creativity is a delicate process. Often times I wonder if I should have just pursued a career for the first half of my life, obtained some degree of financial security, and then transitioned into art.”

Visible progress! It feels so good to do something other than just add layer after layer of color.

I spent the entire day in bed watching netflix because my chest hurt and it was bumming me out. I had to cancel plans I had for this week which is a bummer, but I have been painting so much cause I’m gonna submit to an art show and now I have two extra days before the deadline. Wish me luck. <3
