"The Loving Self"
Acrylic on canvas

I've come to realize that although art does not always make me happy, it may be the only source of authentic fulfillment I can attain.

"Reprogram Self"

Acrylic on 18” x 24” black canvas. 
Do you ever wish you can go back to the very beginning and do it all over again?

"My Chemical Happiness"

I'm playing around with the whole traditional + digital art motif again. There's clear Andy Warhol influence here, where you repeat something until it loses meaning.

"Be Okay πŸ‘Œ/ Medical Compliance"
Acrylic on 11x14 canvas

Second in my series in which I vent frustrations towards Big Pharma. Doctors expect patients to be medically compliant by taking their medication at the frequency it is prescribed. The issue is that sometimes they do not give you substantial next steps for getting off the drug. So this means you are "medically compliant" for months...years..even a lifetime and in their eyes, that is okay.

Third Eye

I haven't had much time to paint due to failures to make time for hobbies but something is better than nothing. I painted over an aborted painting for this one.

My faux multicolored marble paint job on top of a Walmart end table. I haven't been this proud of something I've made in a long time.

I took a break from the usual painting by doing my first Ikea DIY! Faux marble paint job by me. I created the texture by dabbing a crumpled piece of plastic wrap, alternating between black and white.

Undrained rain water collecting in the empty swimming pool. Painting idea?

Everything is a broccoli. If you find this statement disagreeable you haven't thought about the fundamental nature of reality hard enough.

Work in progress. Inspired by that time @kaifaust and I went to the beach and watched birds hunting at sunset, indifferent to the suffering of the fish underwater.

Work in progress...let's say it will be a sunset painting with a twist

"Big Pharma" 
Mixed media collage on canvas panel. Inspired by the thick booklets of side effects that come with prescription medications.

Aesthetic: feeling more at home under the cold night sky than in the cramped comfort of my bedroom

Inspired by @stanleydonwood 
May turn this sketch into a painting later
