A New Movement

Listen young Rembrandts!
Listen to the coming of New Dawn
Listen to the birds singing the golden hymns
The time is near for some berry momentous
The time is near the moment
in the bread slice of the space time continuum
Someone is striking the bronze bells
Alarms are ringing hysterically
Do you see the fire in the fields?
Do you smell the ashes of the dead?
They whisper to you
like they eat ice cream
You gotta do something crazy
something that makes hearts tremble
something to make people cry
Draw an innocent girl
Draw your friends
Immortalize them
because you are so glad to know they exist
it's how they move the world
and it's not that hard
You know the limitations of this universe
Try to go faster than the speed of light
create new colors by smashing particles
reach the highest orbit with maximum thrust
Create new particles through massive destruction
Creativity is the grandest vision of Einstein's equation
Follow me and be brave
We are Lions!
Roar! Lions! Roar!
We are unstoppable

In a Corner of Memories

Acrylic on canvas
2013-11-14
In a corner of memories
I make decisive marks
Hastily before the universe runs out of energy
Friends, we meet by divine destiny
it was divine fate
I respect you
You are the center of the world
You are the most important people in my life
Time is running out
Shine from your heart in the blinding light
Fill the universe with the blinding light
Warmth shall dominate the infinite vastness
For now
Don't worry
Go to sleep
See you again tomorrow

favorite quote from Frank Auerbach

"Yes, no I think that is true. You know, none of these things are unique to me. I think that to paint a picture with a foreseen conclusion is... I don't... I don't know. I don't think very many painters do this. I think there's always an element and sometimes a totality of discovery involved in the process - otherwise it would be so boring, wouldn't it? It would be handicraft."

Man With Hands Tied

Oil on canvas
2013-05-31
They said you can't cut diamond out of shit. Hmm that may be true... By shit they are talking about my raw colored strokes. They say it's mud if I don't have a grand scheme planned ahead of time. Why is that an issue? You can arrange, rearrange, and compose with Lego. My strokes are like LEGO. I keep choosing the best solution at every instance I put down a LEGO. It's like playing Chess. How can I predict exactly what my finished product will look like? Stop being unreasonable.

Blue sunflowers

2013-03-17: There are too few colors in this world. I wish I could add more to the yellow, orange, and green already on top of blue.

I found Mamehana

Fellow human beings, existence is too barren and lonely. We exist on the moon with craters and no life visible on the horizon. We try to find something in the nothingness. We try to find beauty. I found one whose name is Mamehana. She is the most beautiful woman on this planet.
