    I am a Thief. Whenever I go,

    I steal. I take pictures of beautiful images. And I keep them all, all of them for free, in a drawer of a pile of my existing memories. The memories, which may be drawn out later again, by me. I need to gain the access to it by the only key I own, I refuse to share. I don’t...

    I just cant seem to express myself any other

    way, the older I get the more emotional and deeper I get when I express myself. Lately I have been looking for a Muse, someone that will help me bring everything out, express myself in ways I want to but cant by myself, my art of choice is Film but I am always looking for...

    A study of shadows and source of light.

    Shadows in painting are not actually black or gray. Shadow takes on the color of the object that's creating the shadow. 22"x18" Medium: Acrylic

    Am I An Artist

    I stare with you at the colored palettes on the wall, Chosen, judged, and hung like captured men. You see something there, I see it in you. You stare, you gasp, you cry. I see some things, too; but you don’t see it in me. I look and others gasp, others cry. Your feelings wash...

    I have always loved being creative.

    Writing,painting you name it. My art teacher hated my work. My English teacher adored my writing. I guess in that art class I was lonely. Nobody takes art seriously so I was the only student. That made my teacher hard on me. Then I insulted her and got suspended. Chaos is my...

    I think how artists 'see' can be compared to

    It's simply my purpose.

    Word, graphite, paint, water, wind, sand.... All right up there with the materials of magic themselves. Brushes like Phoenix feathers, y'know? It's that magic of dancing on a roof with alleyways on all sides. That magic of the colors of twilight and sunrise. It's just... it's...

    Often you will see artists carrying at least

    one sketchbook wherever they go. a sketchbook is like an artist's personal journal. that's why you should always ask before looking through it. and if the artist shows you only a couple of drawings, remember there is good reason. some things in my journal would scare the living...

    No matter the specific shape,
