Thanks again to everyone for being a part of this project. I appreciate all the love and good vibes that have come along since it started. Here is the first piece for the start of another fast six months to come. One love, one heart… Let’s get together and feel all right… Enjoy!
We were driving cross-country and were in the middle of no where and saw it. There it was standing in a field all alone and away from the others. I couldn’t believe my eyes. There is no way this is real. How the… what the… Have you ever heard of this before? No! One of us googled it, plaid cow, but there was nothing. There was nothing online about it, there was nobody around to ask. There was just the strange cow all alone in the field.
We grow. We learn. We evolve. Our surroundings build us up. People influence us from every direction. Maybe one day in the art museum with mom and dad a three year old child sees a painting and is captivated by it. The child doesn’t know it at the time, but that painting will affect the course of the rest of their life. He/she just has this love for art that is rooted deep inside. They need to paint. To create. To express. The world needs to see it. They have to have it and no one really knows why, but they know something good when they see it. It must be theirs. It must be…
I bought a throw back box of LIFE cereal for this one. That’s right, they made a box with the old LIFE logo font, a throw back. Anyways, let me try and get a little philosophical. This painting represents human life. It’s like looking down onto the sidewalk from a skyscraper at a crosswalk in Tokyo. Life is moving all around, faster than you know it can. You see all kinds of life scrambling about. Maybe you notice… okay that’s enough. It’s just a painting… what you take from it is up to you.
I have a huge tree in my front yard that loves to make a mess. It dropped all of these helicopters on my driveway. Maybe they were a gift though. Maybe the tree had been watching me over the past few months out in the driveway and studio painting. It must have wanted to take part in the project. Thanks buddy.
They have to be out there somewhere, who ever they are. I should know. I was just about finished with this painting and woke up the next day to find these lime green markings on it. I know I locked up the studio the night before. What are they trying to say? Is this their way of communicating?
Are we born not knowing, are we born knowing all? We growing wiser, are we just growing tall? Can you read thoughts? Can you read palms? Can you predict the future? can you see storms, coming? The Earth was flat if you went too far you would fall off. Now the Earth is round if the shape change again everybody woulda start laugh. The average man can’t prove of most of the things that he chooses to speak of. And still won’t research and find out the root of the truth that you seek of. Scholars teach in Universities and claim that they’re smart and cunning. Tell them find a cure when we sneeze and that’s when their nose start running. And the rich get stitched up, when we get cut Man a heal dem broken bones in the bush with the wet mud. Can you read signs? Can you read stars? Can you make peace? Can you fight war? Can you milk cows, even though you drive cars? Huh, can you survive… Against All Odds, Now? ~ Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley / Patience
What if rain drops were square instead of round? Would they fall and collapse the way that they do now? Would the oceans, rivers and puddles still look the same? What kind of cup would you drink from? Would you need a new kind of windshield wipers? Would we all need to buy a different kind of umbrella?
There’s a battle going on. Millions of soldiers march with fury in the pursuit of one goal. Many will die along the way and only one will be strong enough to get beyond the outer walls of the fort. Good luck brave soldiers. Fight hard, be strong and remember… this is for the greater good of the world.
I’m beginning to believe I am obsessed with circles. Have I said that before? They are the perfect shape though, aren’t they? They’re continuous and never ending. Maybe that is why I use them so often. I would like my work to be that way.
The fly. The jelly. The Jelly Fly. Is it a creature? Is it a new dance? I think it’s a band. Yeah, a friend of a friend say he saw them and they were pretty good. Naw man, I recon tha Jelly Fly is a new lure dat’s out right ’bout now fo’ fishin’. I thought it was a brand of hair gel. I guess I could be wrong.
Why must he cry those lonely tears? Why does it have to be so hard? You can see the pain in his face as she walks out the door. You can see the love that he has pouring out onto the floor. He bled for her. He fought for her. He loved her. He will always love her…
Back to the basics. Simple shapes to create a simple pattern. If you were at the Enfield Square event over the weekend then you got a sneak peek of this one. There’s something about simple that I just love.
You’re so pretty with your all pink clothes ‘n’ your all pink car. I hope the purple feathers in your hair get you real far. ‘N’ that your tiny little doggie in your big pink bag, a purple bow in its hair in the photo you tagged. But don’t get me wrong, I like purples and pink. It’s just stereo types about colors that make me think. Are the colors that she wears what bothers me? Or is it that the media has to let us all see?
Lots of people flock to the beach to watch the sunset. I think I’d rather watch it arrive. It brings the light of a new day filled with something different to us. I love the morning rays peeking through the window and watching the dust particles that dance on them. There is no doubt I could spend everyday out in the sun. It’s almost summer and soon we’ll get to spend more time together.
