A Pinafore That Is Just Out Of Style

This is my final task for the year to be completed before my 30th birthday.

PURGE & PROPAGATE PROJECT
Take every noncommittal work of art that hasn't been finished up until this point and enact the following 7 steps on them immediately.
-
1. Cut work into as many 5" x 5" squares as possible.
-
2. Burn all parts and pieces under size and place ashes in a glass vitrine.
-
3. Scan each piece into the computer.
-
4. Take each scan individually and reduce it down to a single relative color.
-
5. Draw a 1/3 porportional square in the center of each cut square.
-
6. Fill the square with a perfectly macthed mix of oil paint relative to the squares reduced relative color.
-
7. All squares not completed by 02.14.2007 should be burned and those ashes placed in a second glass vitrine.

What A Busy Boy You Are

Been keeping real busy with the web business. Today I just purchased new space for hosting and also purchashed a new .com name for a new website. Decided to begin a separation between the fine art and the business side of me. So while cherrylipped.com is almost ready to launch, the new site which will be my permanent home from here on out for my fine art and personal affairs will be thomasarthurschaefer.com. Yup I got my name... how about that one.
-
I'm right now in a 48 hours transfer period, but things should be changed out by the end of year as planned and cherrylipped.com should be up before x-mas. The catalogue raisonne should be up some time after that on the new thomasarthurschaefer.com. I'm still in the process of rebuilding that one too... a lot of editing and rethinking going on with that one.
-
So business and personal... makes good sense to me. The really cool thing is that at some point next year I'm going to open an online store on my personal site and sell various small works like donuts and such, as well as other delicious trash. It's gonna be great!
