Bad Water 1

This will be another attempt at documenting the creative process. The last time I did this it was pretty successful (I think).

The first image below is the photo, and the second is the initial sketch on the canvas. It took about 15 minutes to scribble a few loose lines on the canvas. Today is July 19. At the end of each session, I'll take a photo and post it here along with some nonsense written late at night after I'm drop dead exhausted. I'm starting this at the worst possible time, as I'm about to get insanely busy at my day job. I don't do things the easy and sensible way. Between 10 PM and Midnight is when I lose all grips with reality and let go, sinking deeper and deeper into my subconscious and those dark places where the real ideas reside. When the painting is done, I'll make another video like I did with the Xanadu painting. I'll post it to YouTube and it won't go viral, but that's the way it its. I can't be responsible for people's tastes.

Maybe I'm done with this meadowlands project after this. Or maybe not. There's still more out there to explore.
