Cranking Away

Got up early this morning and started working again in the kitchen. Still working on these special valentine correspondences for the girls. It's taking about 4 coats of acrylic paint to really get these colors to pop. Doing a nice little stripe pattern on each that relates to the contents. Originally I was going to do each one the same — same color pattern scheme. But I have decided that while each will have the same pattern each will vary in how the colors are ordered. This will give them a more personalized unique flare. I worked on the painting of these until about 3pm, had dinner with the folks and then hit the road for Atlanta at about 5. I got back around 7 and did some general stuff around the house, but plan on getting back to these girl correspondences shortly.

I watched a really great documentary last night called 'Rivers and Tides: Andy Goldsworthy Working with Time'. It was really great. I've read a few things about Andy in the past and have always been interested in his work, but with this film you really get to see him in his element. The entire film follows him around as he creates his work - he's an environmental sculptor. Really fascinating philosophy about the world and his art. Check it out.

Barker, you're right.... you know your shit brother. Didn't mean to make it sound like you didn't.
