02/21/2005: "The Ethics of Artistic Cannibalism"
I'm feeling guilty tonight because I painted over the cats in the piece I did for the KTOO charity exhibit that opens next Friday (image posted on January 23rd entry). The piece wasn't working and rather than contribute a painting I wasn't that happy with, I thought I could change it a bit and it would fit with my next series of work for the April 1st opening (which I'm in desperate need of). I like it *much* better now, with the harmonica player.
I have a harmonica and it is one of the few instruments I was never able to really learn, hard as I tried I never got beyond "Swing Low Sweet Chariot". I have a huge amount of respect for people who can really play the harmonica, bend notes, etc. If I have time I'll do another piece for the charity auction.
Anyway, again, my apologies for the dark grainy photo...the flowers should be pink fireweed color, not dark red. I'll post better images of these when I get my new "Works in Progress" gallery up and going.
On another note, I've been watching a marathon of "Amazing new evidence" programs on SciFi channel tonight about various UFO crash site investigations. What do you think guys? Is the truth out there?
