I keep playing with a Spider God of Western Africa tattoo on my left hand idea.
It used to be “random.”
As I was out of no where with a lot of stuff. As time goes by I think I’m black hole sized ways.
So now I say the word is “lucid”.
I really just enjoy books and YouTube
I have such a hard time watching tv. I don’t have the attention span. I have been embarrassed about my ADHD for a long time and I’m learning to love myself better. I daydream if I sit still too long.
Books work better for me. My mind goes everywhere. I fall into worlds and then I paint the things I see sometimes.
Movies in theaters sometimes are fun. It’s hard for me not to walk around with a sketchbook.
I mind is fluid. Like outer space.
I think it means strength in Swahili.
Jãwara Quacy means quiet strength. I think it describes my painting style very well.
That I can use google translate in my iBook app. I really love reading but some times I’m doing to many things at once so audiobooks are great but costly, this is a hack to that. I have read around 5 books this way. It brings me a lot of joy.
Learn color theory
When I started my art career I was really in my twenties. I was stubborn and silly and knew everything I was ever going to know, so twenty. Very silly. I always had a brush in my hands since age 4 but I never saw it as a living until I was 23.
Living at the beach with nothing to do I started reading all my art books again. It all started to make sense. It had to be books I had sense I was a little guy with chickenpox. Silly things kept in unsearched pockets.
My advice as a silly 40 something now is don’t just collect good books, read them too. That and don’t trust shrink wrapping on an art book.
That and lastly, be nice to yourself.
I love you… me.
My dream of a green house.
If I won all that money? Alec and I dream out loud a lot. We want a beautiful artsy house like Frida Khalo had. She had this amazing Blue house with a courtyard. I would want ours to be dark lime green. It would have only a few rooms but they would be just big enough for the things we wanted in them. So at least two studios and offices and bedrooms and kitchen…and a large TV room with cat towers for the babies.
I guess the big dream is to not worry anymore once the bills would be all paid off. To be able to just relax and feel safe.
It’s simple but perfect for what we need.
