They say “you can never go home.” I never really understood it until I was 28. Nothing felt like home. Everything felt like someone else’s home. It broke me a little. Even my apartment at the time didn’t feel permeant. Had more of a crap a plain into a mountain to call it your cave dwelling. Crash a lot of mountains in my twenties, in search of permanence. Me then would loose his mind napping on our couch. Ikea was a new discovery then.

We have come a long way.

I love how this turned out. It just feels beautiful and powerful.

It’s been a long time of making but I feel complete with this one.

Working always

Always making 4/2/21

This life is kind of funny.

I’m in a constant pain in my back and neck. It has set with me for years now. Things lessen or dull it but. It hung stops it. So I have to focus to let my color pallet sing out of me. It’s coming.

I sit at my window and look into the stars. All the inspiration comes and I’m dragged to my feet with brush in hand. It is my night time dance for almost 40 years. Life is a record spinning round and round.

Thankfully I found a great artist years ago named Lora Zombie. She started as the fatalist of this painting. And like all my works it evolved.

Always thank your sources kiddos, it means more than you think that they know they are seen.

Busy making and trying to document.

Always painting

Hard to get out of my funk so I’m working on past projects to finish them. So many.

It all feels easier in retrospect.
