Cell 43 - Boston
art cell 43 boston 2018-08-18
saturday morning 0800 hours packing car in greenwich. another dog day of august. rains daily with high humid temps.... we speak of ideas of bubbles within bubbles, time and space, gender fluidity among plants, sea creatures and humans (represented by the 3 graces).
2018-08-20 monday morning recap. we had a very productive cell. after meeting at dunkin donuts across the street (sipping coffee and chatting until 3pm when our room is ready), we quickly started painting. we brought several paintings each to work on (and not swap later....although carl decided to take them all!), we mainly used cell 43 as a mere work session, and to expand upon the fluidity of gender and time space in bubbles. we basically just jammed for eleven hours...
we worked on the following:
kelly went home with a box of very samll unfinished paintings to embark upon connecting them so as to create larger takeover pieces for us to finish collectively.
we talked about trying an artcell in gloucester and also one next summer on long island near the old funny farm.
kelly will continue working on px and i will work to finish soda jerk and billy rubin (and others) until cell44 - location undecided
the three graces we have been considering for our work were all models from days past. they all had very interesting but tragic lives.

Cell 42 - Maine
2018-07-28 0550 hours ready to go jam for a one day cell in Maine. We will set up and work on PX (The Annuls of an Exploding Pizza with Cranky Corners) and further discuss the universe.
2018-07-29 0730 hours We set up PX in the Maine studio. It was easier in Greenwich due to the higher ceilings. We worked on it some. Kelly was watching it more since it was a new arrival in her space after three weeks away since its creation.
one quick added note on PX blueprint done at cell 41; Kelly auto-drew in red and me in black. We never paint over our original blueprint.
Kelly worked on the new Hugo painting we also started at cell 41. It is a little story about the two of us hangin' at the pub with Hugo and his dog, dreaming up our next collab.
We watched the first episode of twin peaks together( a throw back to art school days), and ate Truffle Tremor with fresh garden tomatoes. Truffle Tremor is a staple at every artcell
Early to bed... just before midnight. we were both up before 0600, mostly due to annoying dogs barking since they smelled something outside (they are hunting dogs owned by Kelly's housemate). We walked down the road by her favorite apple tree. so quiet down the road into the trees.
