Awakened this morning propitiously by the sound of myself in my sleep knocking the remote off the bed against the wall onto the floor. It was time to get up anyway. As I made coffee I remembered my painting projects coming up this weekend and found I couldn’t wait. Feel like messing around with paints for a while, as if I could lose myself in color. That also goes for oil painting on canvas. On the kitchen set of Kevin Belton’s show, there is an oblong painting of the black silhouette of an alligator against a terra cotta background. I’m dying to paint my own version of that. But foist, the furniture.
