This painting came out of nowhere for me; meaning I didn’t plan on creating such a composition, it just turned out that way. Perhaps it’s because I’ve been learning to trust my intuition more (even though a lot of the times it just sounds like I’m talking to myself silently A LOT); and that is what this painting sort of reflects.

Remember your death…

I wish my mind would quiet itself; I have yet to master the art of meditation. I’ve learned though, that creating & staring at something like this actually puts my mind in a similar state. We are everything and nothing at the same time, a paradox.

The Riddle of the Sphinx

What creature walks on four legs in the morning, two legs in the afternoon, and three legs in the evening?

Spiritual weirdness

I think I may be turning into some kind of kook; my mind has been curious about new age, self-help type shit lately, scientology/dianetics, hermeticism (which makes me chuckle everytime I see it because it sounds too much like “hermaphrodite”), metaphysics, the occult, etc.

I’m not looking to believe in anything in particular, (I take what resonates with me and go from there) but it sure makes for interesting reading material, mind expansion and inspiration.

p.s. I just watched “The Master”.

Lady from the Orient

i haven’t had much to say so i’m just here, hanging out behind the computer screen. things that didn’t concern me before seem to be more important lately, like my health. bummer. so for 2012, i gotta try harder to get healthy. actually, i’ve been hanging out on instagram these days via iphone. seriously, what an amazing phone. again, thank you steve jobs for creating products that change how we interact with the world.

oh and happy 2012 to all of you. get ready for the apocalypse.

you will always be…

a mere shadow of someone else, and the ones who walked the earth before you. someone you constantly took from, yet you yourself received all the praise and accolades for your unoriginality, always taking and never giving back anything of true value. while you might fool the masses, you are still transparent to those who truly know what lies beyond your physical appearance and projection of yourself to your so-called audience. we sit back in the shadows, among the sea of people and watch while those who once loved you will eventually despise you. familiarity breeds contempt.
