I have reworked the painting "of blood and blue fish" for lack of a better name, it hasn't changed much, just the way the image is laid down, the original paint bugged me, the enamel looked like whiteout. I'm happy with this "finished" painting, but who knows what I might do to it.
I never really title anything I make, I tend to call everything untitled (make up something.) Titles tend to just come out of the paintings, a scribbled phrase that has nothing to do with the painting or sculpture, like "of blood and blue fish" it's just something that was written on the paper, crossed out. The painting in question is a profile of a woman with a swan, nothing to do with the title or the implied title.
Many of my paintings and sculptures tend to do this; one titled "alibi" may or may not be about an alibi, it might be about a target, I'm not really sure. Another painting, tentatively called "chapter II (together)" is something that I've just started work on, the imagery not even decided upon yet, it is almost like working on two paintings, one the paper painting and the next something to cover it.
I still need to start the "rider" painting; the one derived from a thread less submission. I'm going to paint it on steel, maybe with a little rust with a wood or plastic frame, something to offset the steel.
As for my weekend of work, I accomplished some of the things I set out to do; I did laundry, mostly blacks, started some paintings, acquired a typewriter and dropped off the displays. Somewhat of a productive weekend, know I just need to work on cards and my own displays and I will be set for this weekend.
