Speaking of art, here’s a photo of me near my drawings at my senior show. I’ll try to get some more images of the show up soon, but for now I’m putting this up so I can tag more things.
Back to clay business, the sale starts at 9am tomorrow near the MU at ASU. There is supposed to be hoity-toity collectors and the like coming early, so try and come earlier!
I managed to get a big panel to paint on, but I forgot to prime it. The results are fun, the paint reacts directly with the wood in weird ways. We have six or seven days left in this pose, so I looked at the figures for a while, made a few brush strokes on the panel, looked at the panel for a while, then rubbed them out.
Then after class I monkeyed around on it for a while. I think that since the wood is unprimed, the paint will dry really fast. If I do a lot of layers like this, I might get something out of it.
In all the hubbub of my show, FLUXUS, I didn’t keep you updated on my ceramic stuff. I think I showed you this before it was fired:
Anyway, it’s bisqued now.
I found some older stuff I did out on the shelves, among them were these two:
We did a salt fire, which I liked more than I thought I would, because I got some awesome stuff out of it:
I hope we do it again (I’m sure we will), because I got some nice textures out of it, even though I didn’t really plan anything out special. So, next time Gadget. Next time!
Where are my manners?

In case you don’t have a Facebook account, I am having a senior show reception next Tuesday, the 25th. It will definitely be history in the making, and possibly more history than anything else that has ever happened before, ever.
It is at Gallery 100 at ASU, from 6 to 8.
I forgot to add my painting progress from Tuesday. Here you are:
I put some red mixed with liquin in the back, and that helped push it back, but it also looks shiny today. I hope that goes away, because it’s terrible. I also tried to put some flesh color on top of the figure and then wipe it away, and I’m not convinced it’s working. What do you think?
I started a new one today on the same sized panel.
I think it turned out well enough, I think it isn’t terrible, so I should quit while I’m ahead. There are two figures for this one, which is all well and good, but the panel ain’t big enough for the two of ’em. I remember my painting teacher saying he didn’t want to take figure painting in college, because the main problem with most figure paintings were drawing problems, not painting problems. With that in mind, I am really trying to lean away from drawing a figure how a figure looks, and try to capture painting a figure how a figure is. I guess that’s what I’ve been trying to do in my gestures also. That’ll give me something to do after I graduate to keep this ball rolling, so that’s exciting.
