Today I sorted and cleaned up my oil paints. I threw many away that had dried up. I'm getting ready to paint an anatomy picture of a dissected leg.
I also painted some small wood panels to prepare for smaller paintings.
I visited art studios out at Hunter's Point with a friend. Saw A LOT of boring "art" and one painting I really liked.

Another day of collaging.
I'm quite disappointed that the sugar crystals do not seem to be forming in the really large container, so today I started making 5 smaller hanging armatures for growing sugar crystals.
Today I discovered a provocative artist named Máiréad Delaney. Her work is conceptually and aesthetically really strong.
One of the other collage artist brought me an older medical book with great illustrations. I spent the day cutting out slices of hearts. I didn't finish anything, but played around with a few different arrangements.
I created metal stand-off spacers for "I Transition I". After looking through many fastener bins at the hardware store, I found a few different options, but they were too long. I decided to go the cheap route, but a lot more work! I bought an extra long bolt, cut it into four equal pieces, and drill small holes in one end. It took me much longer than expected.
