Finally finished 42 faces .... stolen souls from the streets and transit of the Bay Area ... this piece was definitely a test to my sanity and a lot more work than I have ever put into one painting... it is a commission of a style and time I didn't really want to return to but I still think it came out nice ... now it is time to get back to painting what I want to be painting...
There is an exhibition tonight in Barcelona @aktivitatbcn curated by the @juancarlos.noria ... I have a whole sketchbook hanging on the wall ... doodles made while riding the Bart train instead of staring off into the nothingness of the internet ... if you are in BCN and still like the real world you should go have a look at all the art from everywhere and drink some beer and dance a bit or just step in quickly and be all uncomfortable because you know nobody ... or whatever you do at art shows .... bye
Woodcarving for @athenbgallery 's second year anniversary show in wonderful downtown Oakland ... flip flap flop !!!!
I have a stockpile of ideas to get to ... finished this one today while my son was asleep ... was trying to draw a person growing out of himself ... shedding ones skin coming out a little smaller with less ego ... a little older ... shrinking into wisdom
That strange feeling in your chest ... gives you the shivers ... slivers from the sketchbook...
Stumbling through the cemetery... A study in devaluation ... drawn on top of a hand painted engraving from 1776 ...
Violent chicken scratchings with ink and watercolor... better to not know where you are going with these drawings... self-conscious sub-conscious ink blots ... melting candle wax ...I don't like the art I am making these days but maybe that is good ...
@streetviewto grabbed a nice shot of a mural I painted in 2015 up north in Sudbury for @upherefestival ... my oma used to tell me stories of little fairies raising hell when we walked through the forests trails up at her cottage ... fairies that could dance and sing so beautifully that they steal years from your lives ... anyways the landscape around Sudbury reminded me of their cottage ... so I did a little painting of a tea party in the woods being interrupted by an entrancing fairy dance ... thanks to @alexandrathegreat @nicoglaude @andrewknapp for the adventures
Paisley doesn't give a lol about this studio stuff ... she wants to get out of here and chase skunks and squirrels and fight bubbly creeks ... lets go !!!
