Digital paintings

I've been in a funk.
Who knew that taking photos of trash and using them as my brushes would get me out of it.
This is what I'm experimenting with for seminar, since I've been totally all over the place with what I'm doing.

Men Who Spit Yellow

This is my response to this really annoying, never ending conversation of "what is art?" and critics over conceptualizing a lot of work.

Make sure you check out...

If I Had Wings

I've been meaning to put these up for a while. They are part of my seminar studies that I did towards the beginning. I'm not sure if I'm going to continue in this direction but these (and their details) are basically self portraits of negative feelings without the work looking "dark". I'll post my proposal at some point about them.

While clearing my head...

So I've been out of the studio for a couple weeks due to various obstacles. Falling behind in life in general however, today I went there to sit and think hoping that I would come to some kind of realization... but my thinking turned into these.
They are about the size of my hand, just to give you some kind of visual scale. They are just studies I suppose even though I don't really have a bigger idea that is suppose to span off of them. Sometimes you just have to put your brush on something and see what happens when you are feeling overwhelmed and uninspired.
If I do more of these... I might make them a little darker. They kind of have the easter egg colors going hahhaa. Not sure if I'm a huge fan of that.

Man who Paints Chewing gum
