I recently came back from a trip to New York. I went out there to celebrate my birthday. It was a combo birthday thing since Erin’s birthday is a few days after mine. The magnetism of that city is real. I can see why it is so attractive. I keep asking myself what would I do out there. I’d make art… what else. I need to realize this. the block that has been holding back is starting to lift. I’ve been making work in the mean time. lots of sketches, sculptures. installation ideas, and a few minor paintings here and there. They are all starting to build . I feel the wave growing again. I guess it was my time to rebuild some ideas that I had. I still have many things left undone, but I’m finding love in the basics. That’s where it starts I guess.
Looking into Grad schools as usual. I feel like I need a place to push some ideas further. I need to just focus purely on the creations and ideas. I’ve been on a steady path for the past few months financially, but things get boring when you get too comfortable. I need to shake it up. Where is the next place to go? What will things be like in 5 years? I’m interested in it all again.
