I started this work as a demo painting when I was teaching a few days ago and I finished it today. I referenced a photo by @fairies_ for this work. Always a challenge to add color when the reference is in black-and-white.

I referenced a photo of @alexisren for this work. I made some modifications which made me feel like the subject was in a classroom. In front of a chalkboard. Ready to solve a problem. A calculus equation, actually. While taking a selfie. In a hot bikini. It's possible.

I referenced a photo by @my_secret_dream2 for this work. And have been affected by the words of Rod McKuen as of late.

THE BEAUTIFUL STRANGERS (#RodMcKuen)
Ah the beautiful strangers
who held me for a night
and fell down in the darkness
on pillows soft and white.

Ah the beautiful strangers
all in the afternoon
who praised my flat little stomach
and came back to my room.

Ah the beautiful strangers
who spoiled me for a time
and taught me neon's just as nice
as afternoon sunshine.

A couple of days ago, I referenced a photo by @max_et_louise via @instagram to do a value study and then I used that value study to reference for this work.

Art Actually


Art actuallyWhen I am in a studio space with artists ... either as teacher or learner ... there's this thing that happens. Where we relate ... we struggle ... we share ... we experience ... and this thing is an experiential relationship that feels intense for a period of time ... either confined to the studio space or it continues into the wild as other collaborative things flower from it. And maybe paintings get produced in the process ... and I've been wondering ... couldn't the relationship that happens the ACTUAL art and the thing that gets produced (e.g., paintings, sketches, etc.) actually a byproduct of art? #bathroomstallmeditation #artactually

Thought I'd paint a few of the halos I recently bought ... before they all get eaten. I arranged three of them on my table on top of a full white paper background. And then I decided to divide that background and add a magical nigh sky to a portion of it. I think it works.

I referenced a still life I composed with my dried flowers and a glass jar as I continued my practice of learn new ways of drawing. And I guess flowers remain at the forefront of my mind right now.

I've been sweatin' bullets, trying new approaches to things ... mainly in the way I draw by imposing some handicaps onto my process to date. Not allowing myself to reach for certain methods of comfort so I can learn new things. Getting it all prepped to teach and dispense in my upcoming Expressive Flowers classes in the month of June ... twice in @studiocrescendoh and then in Seattle.  Details can be found at crescendoh.com ... if you click the master calendar link. Join me if you want to. :-)

I referenced a still life composition I slapped together for this work: one of my dried roses and a glass that I filled with some rose. The stick with the flags was not a reference ... just some #magicalrealism

I recently went to my friend's house who hosted a Death Over Dinner party. We had dinner. And we talked about death. And life. And fears. And joys. All of it. In the peaceful and passionate presence of Agnostics, Christian, Jews, Atheists, Mystics, and more. We believe what we believe. And we all live and die. That beautiful event was on my mind when I painted this work. In talking about all of this the main take-away for me is that I want to live every moment of every day with complete freedom, no inhibitions, and clear presence. To not be a bullshitter nor put up with bullshit. To not lead with fear, but with freedom. It's never not now.
