sprucing up the dump

Katsushika Hokusai's "The Great Wave off Kanagawa" I'm a little annoyed at how it's cropped, but looks pretty good anyhow.

I've always liked that painting. It reminds me of the ocean.

heh - we especially need to be reminded since we don't actually get to see the real thing anymore. That painting has been in my head for a long time. Once I started to paint my friend's apartment wall, recreating it. I got a nice first coat down, and then never touched it again - so he had this weird, skeletal draft of a painting taking up the entire wall. Since it was really just a studio with a wraparound kitchen, it looked even worse. That sums me up tidily.
