“Who would throw this away!” Thats what was going through my head when I saw a perfectly “paint-on-able” piece of glass in somebody’s trash in a back alley. One person’s trash is another person’s art supplies, ha ha especially when the artist is poor like me. Anywho!
A night of painting let to another night of collaboration when some of my friends (who were dancing in my kitchen) pointed out how the drooping paint looked like candle wax. This in turn led to a trip to the dollar store which in turn led to a fabulous flaming experience which produced non other than complete awesomeness,
observe! What do you think?!
My reasoning lies in the definition of experiment “a test, trial, or tentative procedure; an act or operation for the purpose of discovering something unknown or of testing a principle, supposition, etc.” Even if an experiment is a failure, its mere existence is a “testing of a principle” with in turn defines itself as successful. Get my drift?
well at least thats what I’m telling myself after my genius t-shirt idea. But as Edison would say, I didn’t fail in making graphic t’s, I just found a bunch of ways not to make them. Had fun though he he

I love how painting is so flexible. For example, the piece below… I did an oil landscape on that canvas at least a year ago. Unhappy with it, I kept it, and recently found the time to go crazy on it! You can still see a tree in the right ha ha. But what I love about that process is how the first layer that I thought was meaningless actually assisted in providing texture for the final layer. Most brilliant I’d say. Its kind of like life in general eh. Even our mess ups in life seem to lay the groundwork for things to come that really make you remember how precious life is. Anyway, I love this piece, I ended up tweaking the color a bit digitally for the print, but I am quite happy with it
