Artist Statement:

Painting has always been some what of a challenge for myself. I struggle with trying to get the colors looking just right, applying layers upon layers to have that thick application affect, to apply the detail using small brushes, and overall cannot see the final product. In this next series, I have explored the ranges of color to train my own eye. I have looked at real objects in that certain time frame to capture the essence of the colors. I have learned to master the art of coloring in many different forms and media. This was a process that I took upon myself to learn and (hopefully) master.

Hi everyone!

It's so ironic. I helped open my store (Pizza Sola) from when it was first built. Now I have to help shut it down. That's right, my store is closing. It was costing the company too much money to keep it open rather than closing it down. So that means I am out of a job. I guess I could file for unemployment? Or get a new job, but I will never find a better job than that place. They were flexible, honest, friendly. It was the best job I have ever owned and my two years was coming up too!

Now I am going to be running out of money, flat broke. No more groceries, no more fun nights out, nothing. Unless I can take this opportunity to focus on student teaching, start creating art again, and maybe start taking commissions. Honestly, I will need the money soon. It's so screwed up. And Obama says that out economy is booming... HA! That's a big laugh. I know I know, I should not be bringing politicians into this. That's okay I won't mention any more.

Now, I'm not sure what to do. I've worked for so long that I don't know where I should go next. What I should do next? Find a better paying job? Work restaurant or retail? I don't honestly know. I'm upset, obviously, because I have bills to pay, credit card bills to pay, I go grocery shopping all the time cause my parents don't, ever.

Maybe it's time to clean my work room, set up my art supplies, and really start painting, drawing, making contemporary art. Work on abstraction. Or find a job and tell them, Saturday/Sunday mornings, and One or twice during the week in the evenings start at 5pm. Nobody will take me with those hours......nobody.

MIbfjhsdbfuhsdbgljhbslhfbjhsdbljf <--- obviously distressed and unsure of what to do now.

Happy Belated Birthdays!  Also, are you still into drawing? I might be interested in commissioning you for Concept Art and regular Art.
