So, how ya doing?

It's been a while.  Still making art almost everyday--creating, destroying and re-making again. Slow and steady...

I'm currently at work on some small/medium sculptures made of watercolor paper and foam core. Haven't figured out yet how they will be displayed-will the pedestals be part of the sculpture or separate beasts from the actual works? Remains to be seen.  Been nice to just make work and not worry about deadlines so much. 

I'm also working on some felt tip pen drawings and cut paper/collage-style drawings on paper; all are basically abstracted landscapes. But some are venturing on being completely abstract.  Will post some here as soon as I get a couple of pictures of them.

On a different note, is anyone really going to care about this once Mr. Deitch is gone?,0,278228.story

Sure, there's a lot of work that needs to be done at MOCA but that seems to have been the case for quite a while.  So what else is new?  During my stint at the museum on the hill, there were always troubles or issues with the "higher ups."  Sigh.  It just gets so, so tired after a while.  Everyone seems to get in their own way-too many agendas. Thank God for the people who actually believe in the art they show, the art makers everywhere and the good art-things that continue to happen in and around Los Angeles. This good will continue too. With or without the head muckety-mucks to give their blessings.  Really, who needs 'em anyway? Keep at it, artists.  Just keep making what you gotta make and doing what you need to do to make your art happen.
