January is turning out to be a very busy month. Full time hours at my 'job' plus weekends painting. I'm hoping to finish off my brother's album art by the end of the month so I can get back to my own stuff. Luckily after January I'll be spending a little less time on 'job' work and more time on painting work, because I have to be VERY productive for the next seven months. In September I will be having my first solo exhibition at Narwhal Art Projects! I've known for a while, but wasn't sure if I should announce it yet. It seems too good to be true. I've finished three and half paintings for the show so far, so I have a LOT more work to do before the Autumn. I'll try to show some bits and pieces here along the way, but I will try to save most of it for September. Maybe this can count as a New Years resolution: maintaining a rigorous painting schedule and being more disciplined about how I spend my time in general. I don't usually do the resolution thing, but this year will definitely require more focus and discipline than I normally feel capable of. I hope I'm up to the challenge.
