baby pony

groovy baby..

i'm gradually working myself back into a groove in the studio again, after a few weeks away. i was in such a frenzy prepping for my current show at chambers, right up until the very last moment and the matte medium barely had time to cure, that i self imposed a break, of sorts. but, too much time away from work can throw me into a major funk, much like the feeling i get when i don't have the time or energy for my 'junk walks.' but, i've come down off that cloud of glory after years of not being recognized as an artist the way i felt i deserved (kicking and screaming, mind you) and am ready and willing to dive back into the task at hand.

never mind the fact that the studio thermometer reads a brisk 52º. hell, i used to worry about my sink pipes freezing back in my belleville, illinois days. i'd be a spoiled brat for whining under my current conditions..
