2.27.14 Croci jump up Kamakazi style into the single digit wind chill and fall over dead.

473:

Heavy flurries. Parts came in and they are fixing the heater. It seems like we are stuck in a big circle- it's maddening. Snow piles freshened by last inch:

2.26.14 Snowing.

2.24.14 On and on it goes- snow coming again. Losing my mind trapped in the house with these ceaselessly barking beasts. Even the cat has cabin fever . Snow go!.... Shrinking but never gone.

They are working on the heater now with puzzled looks on their faces about what the heck is wrong. I keep telling them there is a ghost in the machine and they seem to agree. Just told me it's really bad- need to order parts. Here we go, off to the races now.

One 70º degree day would fix everything.

At least my long term art project called Table or Tables (I haven't decided yet) is moving along nicely. Should hit the halfway point before my birthday in March. No. 472:

2.23.14 Heater is down- what a bizarre series of breakdowns. Some say psychic energy can get projected onto/into machines. When run through the mill of quantum mechanics it's not too far-fetched.

2.22.14 First of a million flowers to open this year

Bills, bills and more bills. No. 470:

2.21.14 Have you ever seen a 10 yr old dust bunnie? Broken plumbing and electric drove me into some knarly nooks and creepy crannies. Slithering on my belly like some reptile, I turned a dark corner and came face to face with it! I don't know who was more frightened, my or the bunnie.

Scary Table 2.21.14:

2.20.14 Poor Louie is turning into a snowdog. Turning to ice from the head down. "What a world!" -Louie .

Broke Back Barrens, yep, that'll do.

2.19.14 Interesting feelings prodded by the mud and ice this evening, first stirrings of Spring.

Annmarie did a 360º spin yesterday crossing White's Bogs on those twisting roads with no shoulders and deep culverts but stayed on the road. It was a whiteout blizzard at 3:30 am. Today as she approached the same turn a cop was assisting an accident victim near a crashed car. As she slowed, a car coming in the other direction lost control and crashed into a tree. All for nothing too because she had sprung her back the day before and had to leave work shortly after getting there. My back injury from a fortnight ago has just reached the stage where I can function. Now we have two of us moaning and groaning and a grey snow-fog rising to keep things dark and depressing. T 467:

Weather related repairs got a little backed up, T 466:

2.17.14 465

2.14.14 Beautiful morning light after the blizzard. Five hours of shoveling has left me feeling like I played the Super Bowl. Back yard table with morning coffee:

T 464:

2.9.14 Rough night with Zeep and Laurie. Annmarie, who managed to sleep on the sofa with people and animals sitting on her said the morning scene looked like something out of 'Leaving Las Vegas'. After two hours of cleaning, Table 463 emerged:

A couple of inches of snow later. Haven't seen the garden soil in months- what a winter.

2.8.14 462:

Boo is Big! Big Silence (behind Boo) is Big too!

Big Silence story:

About 8 years ago Tommy was getting deeper into his bizarre fantasy world and the daily torrent of letters and drawings began to grow darker. Murder became the central theme; assasination of Celeto his subject. Red crayon and felt pen splattered these pages with the blood of his perceived tyrant. Tommy, in the form of 'Wa', a name he got from a WAnted poster and the discovery that it meant 'peace' in Janpanese, had his cartoon hero stab, slice and bludgeon the snarling tyrant Celeto to death day after day. The raggedy carboard, torn from beer cases, began to build up in mountains of hate. I decided to make a large collage/construction out of them using a new technique I was experimenting with at the time. Sqishing and stomping the pieces into a glue and acrylic medium then laying a veil of tissues saturated in titanium and acrylic medium over the whole thing to weld it together. The hate messages being hidden by clouds of soft fog. The Silence was what one hears/feels alone in a heavy snowfall. An insulated, protected womb-like quietus.

2.7.14 T- 461:

2.6.14 Table 2.6.14, which is 460/1000 of the series:

2.3.14 Let it snow.

The snow never ends- another 5" and more on the way.

That was a giant aluminum bowl on the table below but it looks like a balloon or UFO or something instead- so much for my sports references (Superbowl!?, get it?!) Bob Dylan sure was a surprise though. A Dylan/ Justin duet could have been funny.

2.2.14 Superbowl.

2.1.14 I think I'm ready to populate the chaos so trying out various solutions for a representational set of paintings.

Hate to show unfinished paintings so just some details.

Feb is going to be good.

Hello I read with interest an old post about the artist Herman Bieling, who was posted as 'Pete's grandfather. I am researching the painting that you posted - Bieling's self portrait and would love to hear from the grandson if he knows anything about this well respected artist. Thanks Simon
