I Surrender

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. - Reinhold Niebuhr You'll find this funny, but I found this quote off the wall at Pieology (you know the place where you build your own pizza and it's… Continue reading I Surrender

Random Thoughts : Making My Statement

If you'v ever read my artist statement (here) it probably sounds like I ripped it off of about ten different artist statement examples and randomly pasted it together.  Truth be told, it's exactly what I did. It's actually very hard to explain what kind of art I do, and why I make the kind of… Continue reading Random Thoughts : Making My Statement

One Nation Under Gun

This was another piece I had started last year but stashed it aside because I was having hard time getting the satisfactory results.  I knew firsthand what it would be about, a satirical portrait of America's obsession with the right to arms, as declared by the forefathers of our great country.  Initially I had it… Continue reading One Nation Under Gun

Crossing the River Styx

"When the rich wage war, it's the poor who die..." - Linkin Park This piece was essentially based on the song by Linkin Park "Hands Held High" from their "Minutes to Midnight" album.  Much of that album blasted at the powers that be and their callousness toward their plebeian brethren and their plight.  And this… Continue reading Crossing the River Styx

Today the wind blows outside that it's hard to do any work.  Nothing like trying to keep your papers and pens from flying out of your sight or you're painting and the gust of wind flips the paper upside down or throws crap on the wet surface.  I don't know how long this wind is… Continue reading t.@.L.L.

The Dead Among Us

Somehow I can't get this line out of my head. WE ARE THE DEAD.  I first cam across that line from the famous Orwell novel 1984, which takes place in a world where freedom is virtually outlawed and everyone lives under constant surveillance by seemingly invisible eyes.  The title refers to the year 1984, when… Continue reading The Dead Among Us

Back to work this Friday, though I was feeling a bit sluggish and low energy, something that happens very once in a while.  And it didn't help any more that some teenagers nearby were smoking some weed and I could smell the strong odor, yuck.  Still I pushed myself to get some work done, and… Continue reading t@LL Log 4/15/17
