Painting as drawing, paint as line, paint filling in, paint as cancelling out, modeled paint, paint just being paint, paint pretending to be something else.

This image is painted over an older painting from 2009. I left the word 'blood' from the older version because it fits with the new version. Funny that while restretching the canvas I put a staple in my thumb, the first time I ever did that, and yes there was some blood. I painted a mosquito because one was buzzing around my head all night driving me crazy. Lots of synchronicities.

The second of two paintings I did yesterday. I didn't have a lot of time but just enough. I found a couple of blank store bought canvases amongst older works. I find I often treated them as sketch book pages. Loosely, just getting ides out. -----

Did this one just after seeing an amazing show of surrealism. Don't know if it directly affected this painting but it affected me so yeah probably.

The figures are taken from a neoclassical sculpture. I find the censorship on Instagram very disturbing and hypocritical. -----

Trying to find something but not sure what it is. You know it when you see it. Or maybe not.

I started out thinking about censorship in this painting, that's why there are all the fig leaves. Not so sure if that's what's coming across but it doesn't matter. I really can't stand censorship, moral judgment from some authority that can't handle reality. What a joke. A very sad joke. Making ourselves crippled on purpose. Nature is beautiful. ----

A few days ago I participated in a drawing workshop with some friends at a nursery school. We all had to draw scenes from a book that was being presented. Had a great time- it was fun using little chairs, little tables and little sinks. Miao!

If you know enough art history you can see that everyone quotes, borrows and steals from everyone. The good stuff persists over decades, centuries and millennia. It's all one thing.
