For my FMP I've decieded to do 2 A2 paintings (Mexico and China) and 2 A1 paintings (America and Japan), basically the ones that cause the least offence (I have been warned by tutors not to exhibit the most offensive peices even though they fulfil the message I'm trying to portray, and since it's my first exhibition I don't want to jeff things up). I feel better now i know what I'm doing rather than just been in a constant muddle :)

Rather than stressing now I can spend most of my time painting when I feel like it and actually catch up on reading - just finished Breakfast at Tiffany's by Truman Capote and am 3/4 through Fathers and Sons by Ivan Turgenev. I'm like a month away from the exhibition so all there is to do is print my graphic novel and handwrite each page and attach my book covers to books - it would help if i can track down two cheap copies of HG Wells' Time Machine.

Since I've been absent for so long I might as well post a poem, it's the first one in the book that lives inside the box I designed.

Sunday Morning

Sunday mornings have become a rainy place to be
I fell in love with the sun

She now shines brightly within my head.

Sleeping blissfully on the pillow next to me
I fell in love with the sun

Her sweet, subtle breathe warming my bed.

Take a closer look it’s not that hard to see
I fell in love with the sun

I’m ready to go again, my pencil full of lead.
