PRACTICE AROUND CHESTER COUNTY, PA

These are two paintings I did tonight of places near and dear to my heart. St. Peters Village, in Elverson, PA. And The Chester Springs Studio, in Chester Springs, PA. The studio is where I first learned to draw as a little one. I took many art classes at the studio, including a ceramics class…

YOU HAVE NO IDEA

It’s not amusing anymore to look at the shallow-end and play. It’s in the depth of the ocean and in the things we cannot say. It’s in the sighs, the hems and haws… the deep breaths, … the silent pause. Sunset and glam, you think you got this down. You have no idea what it…

RESURFACING IN RHYME

It’s down the rabbit hole, at the foot of the trees – the hidden swirl of existence and the twists of the tease. It’s in the burning of your skin, that you find smoldering within. The charring and the fraying of those who caught you playing. It’s in the roundabout way that they get up to say,…

A WALK IN THE WOODS

It’s amazing what a walk in the woods can do for your spirit. First day in a very long time that I didn’t think once about my problems. I just enjoyed the moment. Of course I had one of my best friends and a dog with me, so that made it even more enjoyable. Had…

THE TEARS OF THE SPAGHETTI MONSTER

So first-world problems here. I just lost my laptop to Tupperware condensation. I just had to eat friggin’ spaghetti at midnight and I ended up spilling the condensation from the container on my keyboard and mouse pad. Then shit got real and santanic forces united, sending my computer into a demonic posession that I couldn’t control….

SPURS

Sedated from night’s rest, shallow are her thoughts and blind are her troubles, closer her future and further from the rubble. Morning dew sweeps the cobwebs of this godforsaken mind. These god-given gifts, this master of her art and this magician of her rifts. The sun rises above the hills and wakes up the rocks from which she fell. This unbearable heat…

SHATTERED

My work is allowing me to escape my mind for a few, which is a welcomed relief. So far today, I created about 5-6 pieces that morphed into something unique all on their own. Trees, Rams (????) and people with shattered exteriors. Good therapy – better than anxiety meds any day. All I can really say…

ROCK BOTTOMS UP

Just when you think it can’t get any worse, it’s Rock Bottoms Up, blended with a curse. My nose is the only thing above water these days, it’s Rock Bottoms Up, mixed in with a silent phrase. It’s getting hard to breathe day in and day out, it’s Rock Bottoms Up, soaked in with some fear and doubt. I have plans…

BLUR

Feeling down again…been going on for a good three weeks. It’s not chemistry this time though, it’s circumstances weighing heavily on my mind. I owe everyone and their mother something and that includes apologizes for my manic behavior last year. Not sure what recovery bubble I was living in over the last 9 months or…

WATERCOLORS

Finally got some real paint to experiment with. Doesn’t make my work seem so dark & dreary, after all.
