A day in the sun.

So much time to learn and the end results are showing. I have loved Black and White photography for such a long time.

Working really hard

I found myself digging deep to finish this painting. I’m around 75% done. It is an enjoyable idea.

Free the little birds

All done.

Very happy with this one.

A universe of moments and clarity is this thing. Like the moon it is a bison in the distance. Not sure what it is made of. Could be cotton? Only the silliest imaginary beast imaginable. A cotton ball with a cow face.


These things are the clouds in the sky distancing the roof from being fixed but also the world the roof exists in.

Something simple but golden like a piano.

Painter thoughts

Óla my Galeras,

I’ve been thinking deeply since the virus hit. Making crazy art and trying to finish crazy art. The madness is strong. It’s the time available to spur my minds second thoughts. Madness.

The key parts I have understood in my process are to not take the inches as miles. The small moves are never noticed until you make 100 moves. So you have time to play around with colors and patterns and shapes. The love is in the details.

I keep playing with the idea of writing an art/ color/ texture philosophy book.

Color philosophy

And it would all come together from my mind into the book. Maybe it’ll be a lot of things together kind of like me. A mixture of cultures and ideas. A cake of makings.

What do you think?

Life

I feel like all of me wants to just talk with you. I don’t know you. I don’t maybe even know all of me but I’m searching. The path is the adventure and destination should be impossible. Goals are not finishing points but more lessons leraned.

We are the new gods of creativity. The whole point is to make a new world that is better then the one 60 years ago. Because that one was shit.

What kind of god are you?

Art reflex

There are these moments when you just want o make things and your mind is kind of blank. That is when I hone my reflexes.

Life is too short too not make things all the time.

A glue stick and a magazine pared with a thick tip pen can you from madness.

Painter Files Podcast

The change you want in your life you often have to make. Sometimes you have to protest and sometimes you have to burn shit down. Sometimes it’s the harsh reality that no one will make a space for you. You have to create one. People will fight against you making your own space so fight them the hardest.

Never be sorry for making your space in the world.

You are worth it.
