there's a lot going on - and none of it meth lab-related, contrary to what yesterday's picture post might lead you to believe
for the last 4 days i've been working on one of the panels for my contrast diptych using plaster to smooth it out. well i didn't sand enough of it away and tried painting on it. as soon as it dried, the paint just started peeling off. last night i spent an hour trying to hand-sand it off. because it had cured, it was so hard that i just plain gave up.
dejected, i ended up going over to a friends' place for dinner, then came home and watching Dnevnoy dozor, which was pretty good. i was supposed to go to a birthday party (sorry tina!!!), but we didn't end up eating until pretty late.
anyway, the film is the sequel to Nochnoy dozor and second in Timur Bekmambetov's trilogy. It is all over though in 2009 with the Fox produced Twilight Watch in 2009. i actually enjoy watching movies in their original languages with subtitles - it adds a little more flavour when you can hear the actor's real voice/words/intonations. this last one is being filmed in english. oh well.
today kirk and i rented a storage unit for all our stuff while we stay at my parents' place.
we also went by their house to pick up our palm sander. kirk was wonderful enough to volunteer to sand all the shit off of my panel.
so i could basically start from scratch.
sigh. seriously, you guys, i wanted to cry. he's so lovely.
anyway, here's where I am so far:
