bleh and currents
i made a new friend. this is a "lamb prey". they are like lampreys but are cute and fuzzy like lambs instead! they also attract magic lavender diamonds. i want one (lamb prey, not a diamond).
i feel like dying so this is what i have been drinking. nothing tastes better to me at the moment.
also i am writing a new instructional booklets like my ghost guides, but this time not about ghosts! many more details to come soon. i got some new paper and i am watching my work change a bit, it's a little scary, but nice. it is weird to see your hands make something new and not even know when the change came. i am working so much bigger, but i feel it's gearing up to be simpler, still me but grown up more perhaps? i think my thoughts are becoming more organized. it's refreshing to only focus on one thing and feeling because before my paintings were so thick with a million things and feelings.
by the by i am in an awesome show at gallery 1988 on friday in san francisco. if you're near sutter street stop on by :) i will have some new paintings (including some new big ones that involve me stuck on wicked mountains and on calm rivers with ghost sails, pictures to come soon).
and now i leave you with my one of my favorite people, bessie smith.
