+ Sideways

The ocean always moves
Birds have beautiful wings
Songs make us dance without asking permission
Candy is tasty
Sometimes running fast is just as fun as walking slow
A smile at someone you don't know
How pretty the girl is dressed up to go to the club
The animals you only see at the zoo that you want to set free
When your homie cries saying I do to his old lady but tries to hold it 
The way a kite flies
A nice crossover leading to a 3 point shot
Jupiter, Saturn, the stars
The girl wearing a Rumper dancing to her jam slightly drunk
Peppermint smell
A challenging game of solitaire
Colors that you don't now the name of
Ultraviolet Saturday morning dreams
Little kids dancing like Michael Jackson
The longest book you managed to finish and always talk about
Prayers that got answered
Falling asleep on a someones shoulder
Sand in your shoes after a good day
Something you created
Laughing out loud in a quiet room
Poverty that inspires
Birthday cake
A jazz moment
Seeing under water
That song you know every word too
The old thing that's always new
The right portion
The things you take a second to look at sideways+

Working on the +Darkside paintings

So i've been in the studio blacking out canvas with Gesso i found on the street. I found these two large cans of Black Gesso walking to the Dame Dash gallery a week ago and since have been inspired to use them for the collection i'm putting together. The darkside will be a collection of black canvas with thoughts and ideas generated throughout an interesting transition. Survival, change, a perspective gathered from subtraction is where my head is at. I sold "Master Teacher" today the painting shown with the little girl, a Jamel Shabazz portrait I remaid. I held onto it for a while but today it went to the right place/person...On the way to understanding what it takes to keep going as an artist Trumps success, Trumps money...both things in which we want. but right now the main priority is to "keep going" challenge yourself to create in pursuit of what you love and imagine.
