The last painting is sketched and awaiting paint. Working title "Baggage." Harvest flesh instead. My blood guy got sick so missed Monday's blood letting. Only means I will have to play catch up, increase the number of lettings or shorten the amount of time in between them. Whatever it takes. I first thought that I would need about 200 vials to make my "bottle man." Once I figured the cubic inches of an average human body and translated that to vials with allowance for the space between it came to more like 1000 vials. That is a little bit of a difference. There is the addition of the vials of flesh but due to the laborious and VEERRRRYY slow nature of collecting skin I will probably only have about 100 vials of flesh compared to about 900 vials of blood. Then I will have to string them and pack them for shipment to LA. The day before the opening will be the first day all the components will be assembled together: 900 vials of blood, 100 vials of flesh, 30-220 pg journals and a whole lot of steel and wood. Still looking for someone to film the installation work. Love to have them shoot the assemblage as well.
