I have a new Hahnemuhle Travel Journal.
For a month it's been sitting perfect, clean, un messed with. I'm like that with pretty stuff I've dropped a few bucks on.
Yesterday I cracked that baby open. I've done nothing for the last month and when you've got an art blog where you post weekly, that's problematic.
I want to tell you that these are warm ups and a real painting is underway.
If process was a person, it would be me.
Up to now I have only posted photos of work that I want you to see. Finished work that fits with the way I am happy to present myself.

I wanted to go back to these before posting them, finish them, hide the nonsense before my friends said: Err what?
Francis Bacon said, 'The job of the artist is to always deepen the mystery'. Ha.
While I waited for our General Election to begin, here was my brain dump:
I don't normally buy flash because I just like playing. I also like irreverent - even if it does take a month.
What about you? How 'process' are you?
Do you show others your brain dumps?
