Mission Statement


Meat and potatoes, meet my taters.
A-hem test test 1,2,3,. Is this thing on. Can uou hear me. Ah ha low.

Well this is just as basic and bland as can be.
My mission is to be the world's greatest painter. That is right. I said the world's greatest painter. I don't know that it is possible but I will give it my best shot.
I must make it clear though that I am working within my own criteria. I love art I especially love paintings.
I know what I like and which paintings and painters I admire, repect and aspire to emulate or at the very least reach their level of skill.

So here is some of my citeria.
1.)Volume and or body of work.

2.) Variety of work, nudes, portraits, landscapes, still lifes, abstracts surrealism, nonobjective.

3.)Message, statement, story.

4.) Skill Level

This is where I am at this point.
I have a few social commentative pieces but not enough. I could probably use more still lifes. I believe my skill level is getting close to where I would like for it to be. In other words I damn well know that I can paint things most artists would never dream of.

Catch 22

The most suck thing about painting is that by it's nature the idea is for it to be seen. I mean ultimately you can't continue to be viable without an audience.
In reality though my needs as a human being are really to sustain a fairly healty life and to paint and to create. That is it really. That is how it's been for a long time. The prospect of the art process is a lonely selfish self indulgent one(not very healthy an aspect of this existence). Honestly though for me the whole thing is just about the joy and ability to continue to make art.
