It's Sabotage

Had a frantic day in the studio yesterday. I spent a fair amount of the day in transition covering 3/4 of the work I did on the Turducken painting last week in a bubblegum pink. I decided I didn't like where the Turducken painting was going and it would be best to cover it in pink (??) and create windows. In one of the windows I will be painting this new image I found on flickr. I'll be sure to take photos of the transition and post them so this description makes more sense.

I think it's a good thing to go on instincts and to not be afraid of sabotaging work in order to create something that feels right but it certainly makes for a creative rollercoaster of a day. It was funny because I started off the day with this scene of American Beauty in mind - so determined - not to sell a house but to be productive with the painting...

But by the end of the day I felt slightly crazy, out of body, confused, and frantic like Gael Garcia Bernal in this scene of The Science of Sleep.

To get today going I've decided to compile a list of random links that things have been influencing and interesting me lately - in no particular order and with no particular connections.
