This one turned out much better than the last hand painting. I don't love it, but at least it's a big improvement.
Spent the day with an artist friend at the de Young Museum. We visited the painter's show, that seemed like Pop Art before it was a thing. Interesting, but didn't move me. It felt like graphic design work.
One of the best things was the new lobby installation by Leonardo Drew.
My friend had a wall sized vanity mirror break on him, so I picked it up from his house. It weighed close to 60 lbs. and ended up with a really sore back. The shards are especially thick, so not sure how useful it will be. I also painted a river rock for my scrap paper and straightened the studio a bit.
Occasionally, I like to peruse through art magazines and see what's going on in the "art world". Found a few artists I want to research more.

Poor little fox. I guess if you're going to be immortal, it's nice to be beautiful.
Most of us were getting frustrated working in the library because of the disgusting bathrooms and not being able to have food or drinks. We have a new place working in an artist collective.
I worked on the hand painting I completed last night. I would add a few lighter spots, but I like it so much better.
