I am in a bad mood. It’s so hot outside and my apartment feels like a sauna. I can’t work when it’s too hot. And I want to work! I have so many ideas that I want to explore on a piece of canvas – and I have bought some tubes of paint that I’ve never used before, I want to try them out! New pink shades that will make amazing skin textures for my demonic Lolitas, and something called “deep turquoise” for their eyes. I have so many new paintings being born in my head every week.
I can’t wait for autumn to come and rescue me from this persistent heat wave. I need to feel the wind in my hair, to wake up to a grey day that plays shadow games with me and to breathe without feeling like the air is already used up, spit out and all consumed.
