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.

Hulga shots

I think these are the last shop tool shots I want to do. I have this idea of a narrative I want to create with my rolls from now on. these are my bits from the new painting I’m working on.

I just love these color photos I did yesterday.

The life is on

Waking with the sun

My studio feels alive and so it wakes with the sunrise.

Little organisms dancing in the daylights.

Round and round

Film is so stunning and moving. I will never stop understanding the power of developing.

riots

Find me by the water
my toes cold from the edge of the wet

the pinky toes resting the eyes of the next painting on my mind
madness

best part of making
toys of a child

Rage
time
hurt
madness
the brush is too honest.
The action is the riot.
I don’t feel the “cash money word.”
I am never the DJ from Do the Right Thing.


I am the tool of the paint and ink
never the narrator as it happens
but the narrator as it ends
post motion
The soul of me wants to rest in a pure ocean of fluid making.

Black and white 22

The road is endless and yet there are no stones. No pebbles to be lost in shoes. The socks are patched and the boots are cobbled. Rest and be the rain.
