Yes. Feeling productive after several weeks ;-)
And there’s Asia Cup Cricket to watch later today. Not a coincidence. For some reason, watching more and more cricket and my painting process has some inexplicable connection.
And I am NOT a football fan.
Errr, what is Superbowl Sunday?
Contrary to "popular" belief, I think, either this :
the center of the universe
I wait, giving time for paint to dry.
When I paint on canvas I happen to paint few other “improvised” works on paper and other material. Sometimes they are so spontaneous and loose. I wholeheartedly welcome all of them. Because I never throw them away, I’ve already got a huge pile of papers, and other painted stuff, not belonging to anywhere. Unnamed. Unidentified painted objects. I never try to judge them as good or bad. Sometimes they take far too longer than the “main” painting to be finished.
Some more images
Had a productive day in the studio, painting. And a couple of paintings are almost complete.
A half-finished painting (turned upside-down)
We do get heavy rains these days, with thunder and lightning. Monsoon time. Mosquitoes. Paint dries slowly. Lot of power failures and Internet downtimes. At times it’s good to stay disconnected. With little distractions, you get more work done.
It’s too dark to take good photos. Will try tomorrow morning.
And I like my floor :)
"It’s awful. I feel like burning all the paintings and the studio"
"I see. It’s because paintings are the most precious things you have. When you want to hurt yourself, you abuse your paintings" says my friend, listening to me over the phone.
"Wow! Really? I never thought about it that way."
My website will be unavailable until next weekend(15 June)
Reason : I’m moving my domain over to google apps while revamping the entire site.
Unfortunately email [ at lohangunaweera dot tk ] also might stop working during the transitional period :-( Please email me to my yahoo address instead or leave a comment here if anyone needs to contact me before everything is back to normal.
I’m very productive when watching cricket and doing nothing else. And how about Boltanski as a role model ;-) http://www.tate.org.uk/magazine/issue2/boltanski.htm
I’ve been away too long(once again!) It started because my computer monitor was “burned” in a power over-load. I got a new monitor few days ago but it doesn’t look right at the moment. The brightness and colors aren’t working right. It’s too reddish! My eyes hurt: I spent the whole day yesterday trying to figure out how to control this. Maybe there’s something wrong with this one and I need to take it back to the store. I’ll be posting again as soon as I get this thing fixed.
