I have produced three quick paintings today, yet I still feel like my workflow is slowing. I've ordered an old 35mm Cosmic 35 rangefinder, so hopefully I'll be able to get out and about and start a bit of street photography which should give me some new material to work from. I've decided that canvas doesn't suit the subject matter I'm working on and that found and damaged materials, specifically wooden board are more suitable.

Here are the paintings from today. (Again excuse the poor quality photographs.)

I've just finished the presentation on Roland Barthes' Rhetoric of the Image for tomorrow. It's interesting at first, but after a few hours of staring at it, becomes extremely frustrating and tedious! Wish my luck for the presentation tomorrow.

Tim look at Hughie O' Donoghue on his composition. He's an absolutely amazing painter and structurally spot on.
Also I don't think you managed to get to the Baldessari but he says some interesting things about structure- He read traditional text books about how to structure a picture which showed photographs and then stated beneath them whether they were "right" or "wrong"...he found that most of the ones claimed to be "wrong" compositionally he really quite liked....
Remember that post card I showed you with the man with the tree comming out of his head-thats one of the ones...
