Week 5

Having finished 'M25' on Saturday and shot a music video for 'End of Reason' on Sunday, I return to the gallery on Tuesday unprepared to start a new piece. My brain's a bit fried and working out a new painting involves a lot of maths, so I decide to spend a couple of days working on Angie's commission, which I started in the first week of the residency. At this stage of a painting it's all about getting the colour mixes right and balancing them tonally against each other to create depth. On Tuesday it's raining heavily. The day has that cosy feel of being indoors and snug while outside the rain steadily hammers down, summer rain. I announce the next Hoo Ha Record Club on the facebook group page. People immediately start signing up to DJ. So far we have 16 people all wanting to play records. It's incredible for an event which has only been running for 6 months. Our Hoo Ha theme for September 5th is 'VERSION! VERSION! VERSION!' Cover versions, their obscure originals, obscure cover versions, famous originals. Already people are posting up suggestions, the infinite game.  

I wrote that last Thursday. I've been a bit slack on the blog since. It's time consuming to write every day and last week was taken over by my mum's 70th birthday party preparations and celebrations. I spent Wednesday and Thursday last week continuing to work on Angie's commission, a large panoramic painting of Park Hill flats in Sheffield. Tuesday evening I spent with Erica looking at the hilarious footage from the video shoot, Wednesday evening was Rachel's birthday curry, Thursday evening
I had Wilsons practice - The Wilsons have our first BBC Introducing session in September but we spent the majority of the evening practising the covers for mum's party, Friday evening we decorated The Rehearsal Rooms with draped white fabric and gold baubles, a red carpet, a movie projector, and a cask of real ale, ready for mum's Red Carpet Oscars Glam party on Saturday. It was a full on week but I did manage to get some work done...
