I think I heard once somewhere that the essence of lyricism in hip hop is surrealistically painting the street eye view to the listener's brain. Those who render and compose this painting best come out on top.

just to put it out there

Most all of the works seen here on this blog are for sale. Buying one of these means supporting the arts. And I hear supporting the arts makes people feel good.
These abstract paintings are becoming troublesome. I just can't feel them anymore. I feel successful in creating "the horizon ...". It is a painting with a lot of depth using mostly if not all neutral colors that crawl like a caterpillar on its back from one side of a square to the other seemingly stretching the symmetrical square into a less symmetrical rectangle. Put easier, a square panoramic? "Bullets.." does feel like a shield. "Hurry..." was a stoic piece that ended up screwy. The bowling pin was an exercise to take my mind away from itself for a while. Painting realistically is zenful.

Oh the colors,

Some recent works

The Horizon was Derelict with Hubris, acrylic on wood.

Taken By Verbs, acrylic on wood.

Hurry Up and Wait.

Be Sure to Make a Funny Face when you Face it.

Brand new painting. No title yet.

Bullets Don't Take Bribes.

Sorry for the lack of everything. Tough times. I have a few new paintings that I am very happy with. Including a representational piece featuring a bowling pin. Then there are two more abstract pieces. I'll get pictures soon for show and tell.

In other news, the studio has undergone a few minor renovations. White walls. No carpet. Work will be for sale there all first fridays and sometimes on saturday afternoon. My studio mate Jeff Martin also sells work then. He is a full time artist working in ceramics and oils.

I guess that is all for now.
