Goya has always been a favorite of mine, and I often reference him when writing about narrative. “Saturn devouring his Son”, was the inspiration behind my work with monsters.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lately I’ve been feeling inspired to paint; I feel like “dog” may lead to a new series of work.

when a true genius appears in the world you may know him by this sign, that the dunces are all in confederacy against him.

“Thoughts on various subjects, moral and diverting”

you see and then i see…big difference.

“Such passages are especially dear to me; in them I take hold of you, without your feeling it, and therefore without your having to resist. And even if you were to read some of my writings, these little details would surely escape you. But believe me, probably nowhere in the world could you let yourself be caught with greater unconcern than here.”
– Franz Kafka in a letter to Felice

The Ride

So far, things have been moving along…slowly but still moving none the less. Still a lot to do, thankfully I have extra time! I love the rich texture of the seats and how quiet it is in the back! As you can see I stopped the clock at 10:17…for added omnipresence. Orginal radio installed over the weekend! speakers through the front and back, original as well! Still on the search for an actor!
