i got back a bunch of paintings today. My work lately has been getting back to like little kid visual adventures. It's been really fun. I have a loose system that sets up the framework for the piece but then good ol' intuition takes over. The numeric value of the phrase "I love my Lord" has been the architecture. Not so much on the framed collage stuff of late, but the actual paintings that I have been doning. The phrase "It's o.k." has been showing up again and again too, more of a self convincing than a public message I suppose. I use Bauhaus text since it is the good design and art sense of self that usually needs the convincing.
