So these are a couple of watercolors I have made recently. I am realizing that I am not going to do this painting a day, or week, or whatever thing, this year. I keep thinking I will make a landscape painting everyday, or a portrait, but I am feeling a little like ??? So I guess I will occasionally post pictures that I make and I will see if something cohesive comes up. Maybe in the meantime I wonder if I should fade my blog into talking about something else. Like housecleaning or my re addiction to caffeine which has been very disappointing.

Well I haven't done much, studio wise, in the new year. Instead of making a resolution to paint more in January, I made a resolution to finish the animation that I have been working on. There is a deadline for a few film festivals coming up and I just feel bad that I haven't gotten this short done. It kind of has been hanging over my head. So I figure that I need to concentrate on it. I have many ideas of what I want to be painting and I am a little depressed that I haven't been painting but I will be happier to have this animation done so that I can just dedicate myself in my psychological space to painting and drawing.
In the meantime here is a watercolor I made of my friend Elisabeth on January 1. I watercolored a bit after that and I guess I will just be posting random stuff this month anyway.
