I was out of town in Ventura for the last couple of days, so I had no opportunity to paint, but I did get a bit of time working on learning more about alchemy, studying a dictionary of alchemical symbols with astonishingly few pictures in it. Good dense descriptions based on alchemical texts, not contemporary interpretations thereof.
I just learned that I’m going to be able to do a talk at the alchemy conference as well as showing my paintings, so I’ll have an opportunity to describe my process to people who understand what I’m talking about. What a treat! Several of my traveling friends are going to come to Vegas with me so we’re all able to enjoy the discussion and learn from the assembly of experts together.
I’ll be presenting an illustrated discussion of my work Friday evening 6.30pm in Hall C.
