Killing time

I've been working on a new burning over the past few days. It's one of my more difficult ones. I thought it would be a cool idea. It's a lion head, lying on its side. The surround is black and part of the head vanishes into the blackness. It's turning out to be harder than I thought. But I'll keep on working at it and see what happens.
Not much else has been going on. I went to work today and was bored out of my gored. Now I'm just killing time until my dinner is done. Steve's working tonight. He's usually off on Wednesday but he picked up.
Even though it was a couple of days ago, I didn't get a chance to post about it (I know everyone was just broken over it), but it was cool that Ricky Martin came out of the closet. It took him a while, but it's understandable. Now, he's rich enough to where it doesn't matter if people turn on him (and there are enough assholes in the world, that they will). But if he had done it too soon, i…

Lazy Sunday afternoon

Well, it's Sunday. I've been to the gym, cleaned the apartment, done some burning, walked Buster, and practiced the guitar. Steve's working, of course, so I'm just waiting for him to come home. I'm at that point again where I feel like I'm just spinning my wheels. I have two followers here (and I doubt either of them ever still check in), and I've created an artwork page on Facebook but have started to feel as if nobody gives two shits about that either. But if I were to just sit around and do nothing I think I would go crazy. It's just not in me. So I do what I do in hopes that one day it will all pay off. I know in four years or so I will retire from the City and after that Steve and I will move to Santa Fe. That is a definite thing. I can't wait until we can start a new life. I'm so sick of Austin. I'm so sick of the traffic and the people (who get ruder and ruder as more and more people move here). I'm really sick of my …

Stop by and become a fan

If you'd like to see more of my artwork, and possibly join in discussions and stuff, stop by Face book and search for Pol McShane artwork.

Twice in one day!

I've been known to go twice in one day (trust me on this).
Anyway, I had to post again because, one: I have been lax in posting, (not that anyone gives a fuck), but two: I just read that Jennifer Lopez has been signed on to do the remake of Overboard! What in God's name? Why the hell does Hollywood have to do so many fucking remakes? Guys like me who have eight damn screenplays that he's trying to get out, and all Hollywood can do is remake shit that's not even that old.
I'm annoyed.
And beside the fact that Overboard doesn't need to be remade . . . Jennifer Lopez? That's a terrible choice!
Okay, that's it.
I'm out.
(By the way, for those of you who do happen to read this blog, you like the new look? I'm trying to get into it again, so I thought I would spruce things up a bit.)


I just finished with my latest burning. It's another done by using the stippling effect, which is a bunch of tiny dots placed over and over each other.
