composition (that's artist talk for where shit goes)
























 lately i have had the urge to paint.

real paint on real canvas and stuff.

and to use words like gesso and underpainting.

i am conflicted by the douchey asshole in me that thinks they can paint

and the who gives a fuck awesome person in me that will do it anyway.

i know i have a little artist in me. (douche douche douche)

it's in the genes.

and..i have had some schooling on the subject..a wee bit.

but that just really doesn't matter.

i don't believe school necessarily makes you good at something

(unless we're talking medical school)

in fact i think a lot of the time it affects natural talent in a negative way.

(spoken like a true asshole)




i am inspired by interior design.


the photos above, if you squint your eyes, LOOK like paintings.

it's the composition of the color and texture in them that i am inspired by.

not as easy as it may look to put together.



some examples of getting it right:







lot's of bloggers are turning into artists, some good...some...meeehhh..


what are your thoughts?


any artisty advice for me?

cheap paint sources?


i aim to share my art stuffs with you.

of course.


even if it sucks dick.



in general i am terrible at keeping secrets


this is mine.

michelle armas super painter painted this just for me.


i was going to wait until next week

when she delivers it to show it to you.

but i can't.

it's too awesome and it holds powers greater than my brain capacity for keeping secrets.

she asked me for inspiration and in short i said "lavender and yellow".

i got so much more than that.

she really is a genius at capturing YOU in her work.


i can't wait to hang it above my fireplace.  

pictures of that next week.
