I've been having a little fun lately working small scale. These are two of them that I recently finished up. The themes of cigar smoking and hot coffee is going strong. I never quite know when the next thing will come that I want to paint. Sometimes, I have to push myself to try something new. Other times, like now I have to force myself to stay on the same thing and new discoveries are born. 
  There comes a little bit of discipline, I just want to (at times) completely go in a different direction and go all the way abstract. I want to cause chaos on the canvas, and I push myself back because going that path is not always necessary or the best way to say exactly what I what to express in the work. There's a time for it tho, now is not one of those times. There's always an obscure line between pulling in the viewer in or overlooking them where the work becomes uninteresting. It's a push and pull and staying on a theme and what comes from it to know where to go next. 

Can you deliver?

This question has dogged me. The difference between me practicing vs when I actually freaking do it. I tend to crack under pressure so it's very annoying. So, the right answer to that question is NO.

If you can't do it under pressure, can you really even do it?

Do we live in a perfect nation?

"Perfect Nation"

I started this tiny painting thinking of corruption and cover up, thought of Jack Ruby then my mind went to fast food and our nations over stimulation of sugar/and fake sugar in food. Draw your own conclusions. Our country seems to be in disarray. Hope you all enjoyed the debate last night. 

On another note, after I finished the painting, it reminded me of Robert Colescott. I was kind of suprised how the piece reminded me so much of his work. He was a genius of openly showing the deepest paranoias that lives inside of all of us.
