editor’s note: this painting was reposted with better pictures later. however, this post has been left intact to preserve a picture of the artist’s mind at 4:30 in the morning.

YAY! i finished another painting. been staying up late two nights in a row (4:45am right now) cause after a certain point, when you see you’re about done, it’s so hard to wait another day. Pleaswe excuse any typos, abrupt sentences.

also, the pics aren’t so great, taken in my apartment in the middle of the night. They turn out much better when taken outside somewhere. and without SHAKEY HANDS which unfortunately i sometimes have.

This is a very small painting, about 10×10 inches, and from quite awhile ago! 2005 or 2006.  (ALMOST completed posting all the old images I’d like to share.) This is a library at my college. The next painting I’m working on, and hope to post soon, is also of a library. If I work hard, maybe it can be posted next to this one.




Capoeira!! I miss it. It’s so much fun to try and learn to kick, do handstands, while learning portuguese and how to play brazilian music instruments! This is from 2006, may be the oldest thing posted, but I still like the pic.

Oh, I am on the upper right, and my teacher is on the upper left. He’s trying to show me how to do a handstand. I could never do it. But kept trying and kept trying, falling WHAM right on the floor sometimes. He was going to name me Persistanza…except I had to quit before Batizado and never got my capoeira name.

The Dam

This is a painting from February of 2008. Started it about 3 years before that and put it aside because I got stuck and didn’t know what to do with it! It’s loosely inspired by a dam in Oklahoma that folks go to to fish or walk around or get drunk in the middle of the night, etc. You can walk around on the dry side, they’ll sound an alarm for quite awhile if they’re planning on opening the gates.

I went down there once and took photos, not just in shorts of course. So this isn’t really from memory, but about a way I see myself.

The me there is ALSO very inspired by this painting by Domenico Veneziano.
