“AUTUMN LEAVES”

THIS ABSTRACT PIECE I WANTED TO CONCENTRATE ON TONES PROGRESSING, THE FALL FOR ME BRINGS A CERTAIN PROGRESSION AND FORWARD THINKING AND I THINK THESE ARE THE COLORS IM ATTRACTED TO AS WELL. THE FALL BRINGS THE LEAVES AND BRINGS CHANGE WHETHER YOU WANT TO DEAL WITH IT OR NOT. THE TITLE COMES FROM A MILES DAVIS TRACK OFF OF THE MILES IN BERLIN ALBUM  THAT I WAS LISTENING TO WHILE COMPLETING THIS PAINTING. ITS MEANT TO BE PERCEIVED HOWEVER YOU SEE FIT. THE PIECE WAS COMPLETED WITH ACRYLIC PAINT AND SOME PASTELS ON MIXED MEDIA. THE MEASUREMENTS ARE 17X14.

“SOMETHING ABOUT SOMETHING”

NEWEST ABSTRACT PIECE IVE CREATED TITLED SOMETHING ABOUT SOMETHING WAS DONE WITH ACRYLIC PAINT ON MIXED MEDIA AND IS 20X16. I TITLED IT THIS BECAUSE LIKE WITH SOME PAINTINGS I DO ONCE I HAVE AN IDEA ABOUT IT AND I START ACTUALLY PAINTING BY THE TIME THE END RESULT IS EVER REACHED THE ENTIRE IDEA PROBABLY HAS CHANGED THEREFORE SOMETIMES HAVING ME FORGET WHAT IT WAS IN THE BEGINNING, OH YEA IT WAS “SOMETHING ABOUT SOMETHING”

“WHOS GONNA SAVE MY SOUL NOW”

I FOUND MYSELF IN A BAD PLACE RECENTLY, FULL OF ANGER AND RAGE. FEELING LIKE THE COLLAR AROUND MY NECK WAS GETTING TIGHTER AND TIGHTER. I FELT LIKE A FAILURE, A LOSER, LIKE THE POWERS THAT BE WERE CURSING ME FOR SOME REASON. I NEEDED TO RELEASE TENSION, TO EXPRESS. TO PUT MY RAGE TO SOME GOOD USE. REALLY TO INDULGE IN SOME CREATIVE THERAPY, THIS IS THE END RESULT. I CALL IT

“UNTITLED”

THIS UNTITLED PIECE IS  CURRENTLY MY NEWEST PIECE.

I LEAVE IT UP TO THE VIEWER TO INTERPRET.THE DIMENSIONS ARE 17X14 AND WAS DONE WITH ACRYLIC PAINT AND SOFT PASTELS AND CHARCOAL ON MIXED MEDIA PAPER.

“3 INTERPRETATIONS OF THE DISCOMBOBULATED”

THIS IS A TRIPLET PIECE THAT I RECENTLY COMPLETED. I LIKE THE NOTION OF REPETITION AND THE NOTION OF IDEAS MORPHING AND GROWING AND EXPANDING INTO SOMETHING THAT YOU INITIALLY DID NOT INTEND. I WAS INSPIRED OFF OF FRANCIS BACON AND PABLO PICASSO AS WELL AS AFRICAN ART. THE DIMENSIONS FOR ALL THREE ARE 17X14 AND WERE DONE ALL ON MIXED MEDIA PAPER.
