I haven’t painted at all in 2011. Or made music. Nothing’s sadder than a guitar in its case and fingers that used to know how to play once. I don’t think they remember too much anymore. I’m scared I will be forty soon and wishing I’d stuck with it while I had the chance.
I was somewhat good, you know. I used to write songs sometimes that other people couldn’t always play. But I began to paint and I don’t make much music anymore. And now I’ve been working on a logo design and it’s already 2011 and I haven’t painted once in the whole new year.
Or made music..
And so it is. I did almost finish a song in the end of December, though. And I did a 3 canvas wide canvas the day before New Year. It turned out pretty nice, Zonk. But it’s big and black and reflects light like a barrel-full of tar and I didn’t have the room or nice enough lighting or a camera to take pictures with. And nobody else really cares about taking pictures of it and now it’s kind of too late to upload even if I did get a picture. Same as with Giant Canvas. I didn’t take a picture and now I don’t have any. Though my brother-in-law did take a few pics of that one while it was in his house I think..maybe I will put it up after all. At least here on the blog where only the 10 (or so) of you will see it.
And now, goodnight. I need to send in a draft of my logo again tomorrow, and alter some clothes and pack my bags.I leave for Bangalore day after. The bus ticket’s here, the rooms are booked. It’s a tiny trip; everybody’s going for the Prodigy gig. I’m just going along because I need a trip. And this time it’s working out for sure.
