I've been painting a lot lately. The biggest reason I've been painting a lot is to hide from editing. I keep hoping that if I don't acknowledge it, it'll get tired of being ignored and just do itself. So far this plan isn't going as well as I'd hoped.
But, you wanted to see new paintings and are probably ignoring everything I'm typing here anyway. Ham water!

I still have about three pieces of canvas left before I have to get serious about that editing stuff. I guess.
