About the art...

I mostly use Acrylic on Canvas, mixed with varying other mediums such as gloss, plaster, watercolor, sand, glitter, silicone, and spray paint. My inspiration comes from the same place it does for my music and other projects - dreams, interesting concepts, awe of nature, and delight in life. My motivation to paint is simple: it's fun to smear a paint-like substance on a cloth-like surface. And, these days because of practice, I know I'll be able to make something good happen if I start something. Fun and progression lead to more fun and progression. And, then the detail phase about halfway through is where the concept really starts to show.

I've learned that taking my time and being patient about a piece is how I'm able to get through it. When there are times where a painting "isn't working out", I just reset and start again. Paint can be painted over. I lose the first concept, but, I can retain the lesson learned. Most of these have inner layers where I started a concept (or 3) and have been re-worked to match my vision more closely. I have that same attitude with making music and building projects. There's no finish line to strive for. But, I can usually tell when it's "done", and that's when I stop that one and start another.

Some of these I don't have any more - and some I still have in my collection. Once I get a few more striking pieces, I might consider setting up a shop or doing a show. But, for now, it doesn't matter that much to me. I just want to keep doing it :)
