Hello all. This is an exploratory poll for my new Sekrit Art Project. I've been wondering what I could do to follow the collaborative maps project. I wanted to do something else that would involve contributions from lots of people. I'm not going to tell you what it is yet, in case that prejudices the answers I get, but I'd really appreciate it if you could take a minute to fill this in and help me build something cool. The more contributions I get, the more potentially cool it will be. Once I see how this poll goes, I'll either refine it and try again or come back with Phase Two.

So: Without thinking about it too hard, tell me some things that have passed through your mind lately. In single words or short phrases, if you can. As many as you like - the relevant text boxes are maximum length (255 characters). If any of them are people, please tell me roughly what relationship that person has to you (eg "Barbara (evil boss)", "Brian (best friend)").

Some of this may end up in a viewable - but much altered - form at some stage, but if you say you'd like to be anonymous I promise you won't be identifiable in any way. Your secrets are safe with me.

Thank you!

Edit: Great stuff so far, keep it coming!

I've done a painting I don't like. I think it didn't work because I was trying to paint something I could see very clearly in my head, rather than just starting to paint and seeing what happened. Oh well:






I do like this one, though:





And now, in Good Art news, who wants to see this Antony Gormley exhibition with me? It's in London, so it'd have to be a weekend for me, but it's on from 17th May till 19th August.

I have a day off today. It's glorious. So:





This is what I've been up to the last couple of weeks. I've been wanting to paint something for ages, but could never settle on what. Then one night I sat down with one of a set of four canvases (cheap from The Works. If they'd been expensive canvases I'd never have picked up the brush) and told myself I was just experimenting with using paint and mixing colours. I deliberately didn't have a goal in mind, I just gave the brush its head and waited to see what happened, and the whole thing was such fun that I went on and did three more.

On the downside, my laptop now has tiny speckles of black paint on it due to overenthusiastic brush-flicking. I feel like Brian from Spaced. "I paint... fear! Aggression! Pain!"

Capital One spammed me today. "You could have this [spectacularly awful] credit card in your wallet! Look, we know you're an idiot - you must be if you're considering applying - so to choose which design you want, all you have to do is peel off one of these little credit-card-shaped stickers and stick it on the application form! You can have a piggy, a monkey, a puppy, a tigger or an England flag!" I threw the rest in the bin but kept the stickers. I might send them out with the next Wasted Epiphanies as an Ironic Comment on the Debt Culture, innit.
