The Mushroom Squatters

I started work on a new painting over the weekend, 'the Mushroom Squatters'. I made some good progress, although I still need to flesh out the morel's top and the carpet on the right, and of course then there will be the endless process of refinement, but at least it's off to a good start.

I saw a show of Picasso's work on Thursday here in Berlin. For such a great collection of paintings the show was exhibited modestly and the turnout was sparse. All the better for me to view it.

I joined up with some friends yesterday evening for a séance, some good old fashioned table tipping. The table didn't do a whole lot for us, though. It just slid around in slow, tight circles, and then stopped altogether. We gave up after about 20 minutes.
