Not being able to paint for extended periods of time like this emotionally disturbs me. Painting has become the love of my life, and like a woman who is gone from me, I miss painting so.
The academic drawings and projects have been nice, but it is not the same as large canvases, buckets of paint, and the energy and emotion that flows through me during the process of when I work with paint. Making music has been great as well, but again my little garage studio is where I feel the most creatively focused and alive.
As soon as I get paid, I must buy more canvas and paint, it has become necessary for a sublime and happy existence. On that note, if you have the money and desire for abstract art, please consider purchasing my paintings, just so I can continue to afford to do what I love most…. to paint.
So…. I have been posting a lot of artwork on my tumblr lately, and I doubt this will change anytime soon.
1. Cataloging - Its nice to have a place to post and record my work and have an easy place to view its progression, improvement, or even regression.
2. To show - Not to show off, but to honestly get real feedback, criticism, constructive praise, etc. Most of the people who view this are fellow artists and I enjoy sharing and discussing art with them
So if this gets annoying to you, just stop following my tumblr or delete me from facebook or something….
