Usual clutch of invitations to gallery openings arrive. Most look pretty dull. Pick out one to the Gallery of Modern Art on Thursday.
Why are artists so bad at selling themselves?

Go to see Mulholland Drive in Glasgow's new cineplex. Creepy. Set in LA. Recognize chunks of the scenery from my visit last year.

Ring an artist friend this morning. Her husband is having an affair and she wants to talk.

I graduated last year from Glasgow School of Art. How do you go about being an artist at the start of the 21st century?

This on-line diary will reveal my struggles.
Lets start with some good news.

Got a phone call this morning from the Gallery of Modern Art in Glasgow. They want my two videos for their permanent collection! Great!
Guess this makes up for the recent fiasco where I gave a digital print to be auctioned in aid of the local hospice and it made £18...the frame cost £30.
