This year, I think one of my unstated goals was to avoid using the computer as much as possible while it was summer. Of course, when I have video work that makes it necessary to be on one, it can't be helped...however, if you're familiar with what winter is like in Montreal, there is really not much reason why I should be staring in a glowing box in a dark room during the nice part of the year. It won't be long before the sun sets barely after 3 PM and 30 minutes will be long enough to get a frost bite. So, I haven't posted anything I painted since intentionally and have an array of images lin…more
