A friend of mine stopped by yesterday afternoon and after a lovely visit her parting words to me were… ” you just need to learn to be content.” Now seeing as she is my BFF and has the uncanny ability to ALWAYS speak her mind with me the comment did NOT offend or insult me. It did however inspire me. So after about 15 plus hours of processing and marinading on this I have some thoughts…….
What does it really mean to be content? Is this a subjective definition? Does one really know…Continue
This is my 3rd trip this summer, and this time I am determined to make art while out of my studio.
Landed in London on the 21st, and purchased a small set of Winsor & Newton acrylics (set of 12, 20ml tubes), but no time to make art.
Next stop, Paris for one day, no time to make art.
Many sketches on the flight from Paris to Brussels, but no time to paint.
Spent 2 days in Brussels, but no time to paint.
Many sketches on the flight from Brussels…Continue

I figured I should just put this up as a blog post since I am now now showing multiple pics of the same work at various stages of completion.
Here is another view of the first stage, which I previously posted.
And here it is in…Continue
Sunlight spreads over a face in the shadows
Like the flower of truth beginning to unfold.
Look within myself, the nature of my being, this life's journey. Seed planted deep upon the…

The meeting with the "Prime Minister" of the Major was a big success!!Thank to you all!! And to this very special major that is wishing to do the best for his people! (I mean, is a right wing politician who wants to build a memorial-paint a fantastic mural to the relatives of the 4 detainees-missing persons that the town had in 1973, after the violent coup of general Pinochet). I think we need more people like him. And like you, folks!
Is it a coincidence that this is the only town in…Continue
I Stumbled apon this interesting article:
It got me to thinking about the 'What do you consider not to be art?' discussion (Piss Christ) and how a few of us are 'pushed' away from what we would really like…Continue
There is a protest wave right now in my country, Chile, started by students and ecologists, with hunger strikes, raids and riots (left-liberal oriented, as usual). I'm not naive about all what have been written and done about the art-politics axis, and I simpathize with some groups as neoism, but I'm wishing to be able to gather youngs around a workshop, or somehow generate or organize a venue to bring the healing, fun, inspirational power of art praxis rather than "make consciousness"…Continue
Below is a link to the website of what is MOMA's version of a P.S.1 open studio's tour. I haven't had a chance to look at a ton of the artists work yet, but there sure are a lot of them, and this is only for new york city. Each link takes you to an artists page, with bio, studio shots, pictures of their work and a link to the artists website (if they have one). Please feel free to chime in and let me know what artists you found interesting.

According to Mirriam-Webster, the simplest definition (I used the children’s version) of…Continue
It is sort of like asking if your belly button is an “innie” or an “outie”, isn’t it? Does it matter to you? Does it hurt you or help you? Does anyone really care? I’m not sure. I’d love to know what you all think.
It has become quite popular to be considered an “Outsider” artist.
From what I know, an “Outsider” artist is an artist with no formal education. (It also sounds little rebellious and cool I think, like alternative music)
So, by this definition,…Continue
I was in line at a register the other day at the local art supply store and I overheard a conversation behind me. There was a chick with a cart full of canvases of varying sizes and the gentleman in front of her asked her if she was an artist. She said yes, she has a show coming up in October at a local gallery blah blah blah. At one point the conversation turned to jobs and making a living and the such. (it was a really long line.) So, i found it quite interesting when she told this…Continue

I know I'm weird, but I love to take pictures of my new stuff whenever I pick up art supplies. I guess I like to document how nice they look before they are incorporated into the art making process. They will never look this nice again :-)
I've never used the Alien spray cans and I have never used Fluorescent paint. Should be interesting.…Continue
