I figure this is a perfect time to write this since I'm expecting visits today and I'm ridiculously tired. There's a high chance that not much painting will be happening. The exhaustion is rooted with the fact I didn't take a "vacation" this summer as [...]

This post is very relevant the my future plans regarding self portraits. As of today, I have 35 self portraits in the bank. Rembrandt has close to 100. He's dead and I'm 27 so I think I can top the Dutch mirror loving master. That's [...]

It's funny how when I get close to vacation time that I discover more and more routes to travel forward with concerning painting. Ideas grow and start to feel like hunger pains when you can't act on them. As frustrating as it might feel, the [...]

I'm in a very Brut state of mind these days. My thoughts have been preoccupied with evolution and risk taking when it comes to the series. I feel very slippery talking about if these recent three are successful or not. I've always stood by the [...]

So this post took a while and Happy May Day or whatever it is that's being celebrated today. All the stores are closed and I have a fever making me quite peachy. Since I'm sick, I'll take this as a sign that I should sit [...]
