I know we are supposed to suffer for our art, but how much suffering is too much? I am seriously starting to rethink the whole wax and oil step of my new series. Would the work still look good with the whites stark white? I like the way the wax makes everything yellowed and hazy, but it is such a pain to do. So what do you think? Do my paintings look better waxed or unwaxed?
In other news, it looks like Bizzarre Magazine in Barcelona will be doing an interview with me and featuring my work in one of their upcoming issues! I love how the internet allows people outside of my immediate area to see my work and contact me. Last year my work was in LOLA Magazine, which is distributed in Brazil. I don't think any of this would be possible ten years ago. I don't think I even had a website back then... Isn't technology wonderful?
