Wax Cataclysm


Today I finished the underpainting to the small Wax Cataclysm painting (part shown). I want to make the frame look like candle wax. I think that Polymorph plastic will do the job.

In other news I'm now a member of the Performing Rights Society, and I've got my entry forms for the National Poetry Competition. I'm feeling like I'm not getting enough work done though! My ideas are way outstretching my output, and some are rather good. While working on them I feel I need to keep having new ideas to stop getting rusty. A painting idea takes less time than to paint one. I suppose I'll stick with what I'm doing and how I do it.

Now, onward! I must transfer the drawing for the Nine Ladies, then perhaps plan a picture for the Threadneedle Prize. If I choose to do so that'll be four paintings for big competitions painted this year. April has been good so far, even if my respiritory tubes continue to play wargames.

Congratulations on your induction into the Performing Right Society! And, good luck on the N.P.C. as well. I like your painting - very cool. The title is great. Hope you're feeling better now.

I like you surreal imagery! Maybe it's the poet in you. Congratulations on your induction.

Isn't it great how painting begets painting? May the circle stay unbroken...
