Quote of the day

There is only one basic human right, the right to do as you damn well please. And with it comes the only basic human duty, the duty to take the consequences.

-- PJ O'Rourke

(Thanks to C.O. / J.G. for introducing this one to me.)

I paint because

I paint...because I'm sad. Or, I paint because...I'm enraged. I paint because I'm frustrated, or because I ache, or because I'm excited, or scared, or insecure, or happy, or confused, or doubled over with grief. I paint because I feel, and I feel so intensely that it fucking overwhelms me.

(And by paint, I mean creating art in general. I just happened to be painting at the time I wrote this.)

Open call art submission

At the last possible second, I have just rushed to submit something to the 3rd Ward Open Call for their 2010 winter solo show (the deadline was March 1st, 2010 at 11:59 pm).

3rd Ward submission

My submission was a single photo of my painting Conditional. I would have submitted more pictures of other pieces, but each submission costs $15, and that's all I could afford at the moment -- planning ahead fail, hahaha.


Anyway, wish me luck!

[Also, I very very gratefully accept donations for little expenses like this. If you like my work and would like to help out, you can send me a coupla bux through Paypal.]
