It's funny because it's both self-deprecating and sincere.

Painting 056 - 6/25

Oil on gessoboard
A new surface reaches its peak of awful only when it is compared to an old standby surface. I mean, look at this: I didn't want to do this painting, I can't work with green, and it still came out well (apart from some drawing issues). I know it's not only cheap but self-defeating to attribute success or failure to a surface, but trust me. Augh.
