When I was a kiddo Galeras, I was told that people ate bush meat. It honestly freaked me the fuck out. But honestly it’s jungle food. They eat what they can catch. It’s part of the orginal humans. So like many of you I have been thinking about bats. I have been around them off and on in my life. Never ater them but I know people who have. South America has lots of different foods to McDonald’s. I always felt like bats are beautiful and kind of magical.
They all kind of are coming together with my medataion paintings. I feel pretty good about them. I feel pretty good about this.
I’m not sure if it will become a print but if you enjoy the painting I am selling it. I find it funny that people don’t realise I sell all my paintings and I do take tips. Every little bit helps.

Everything I make I make to share and often sell. All tips are welcome.
Something to be said about fear and fearlessness. They both motivate but in very different ways.
The soul of my brush is fearless but the hands are human. They question the motions. All I can do is giv einto the brush. So many paintings painted up inside me, waiting for a canvas to scream into.
You kind of have to fuck the fear off the hand with paint. I know that sounds insane a little or a lot. Nothing ever gained in my life was because it was given. I walked with wieghts in the water to get here. I fucked up my hands to get here. It just meant more to me than sleep or even madness.
The road to fearless painting is marked on caves inside of scared memories. The passion was and is alwasy there. That why I say “always making”. I make in my sleep , in conversations and even while I eat.
I always find my words in these podcasts. I’m so quiet in a lot of life. I love to paint in my head rather than slow down and be a part of everything. I must look crazy to most people but it makes me happy. I figure the idea is to find what makes you so happy.
I hope this finds you well and the photos are from this week in my studio. I loved this week’s end.
