In Progress

Here’s a bad photo of the sun drawing that I’ve been working on. I started it about 2 or 3 months ago and got bored with it.  I wanted to use the techniques (white chalk on black chalkboard paint) that I used for this for The Stars Are the Diamonds of the Poor. Sometimes I feel like it looks really good and on other days I give up in frustration, but I know I have to finish it. I worked on it a little today. The other constraint is that I can only work on it in the day since I can’t really see what I’m doing at night. Also I stopped working on it when I found a similar image in charcoal that Robert Longo had made. I also found some atomic bomb clouds in charcoal that he had done and felt a little relieved that I had made my bomb paintings first, not that it really matters. Here’s a good Robert Longo quote:
“I think I make art for brave eyes. I don’t want to make art that will pat you on the back and tell you everything is going to be okay. I want to make something that’s much more confronting.”
