Wild Lives





Today J, Burger, Lyle and I were driving home and 
Burger said I should draw a picture of Cavemen fighting 
soldiers and that the soldiers would win because 
Cavemen didn't have anything to protect them except
the cloths covering their penises and that they were probably
always cold anyways and I said that they were actually 
quite hairy and J and Burger both agreed on this and 
I think it marked the first conversation we had
where we all three agreed on one specific thing.

Cavemen were quite hairy.

Island








We went to the Dominican Republic.
It was as beautiful and wondrous as my 
old work pals made it out to be.

I want to go back and I want to to stay
until I forget what I ever saw in the States.

Nothing personal, just how I feel one day out.

hi



I wake up sore.
It comes with the territory, I mean, when you move things around a lot
for a job, you kind of need to expect to be a bit sore. If you woke up and you weren't sore, then you were doing it wrong, or you were the lazy dude that was just looking on his phone while the rest of the guys break their backs on the icy steps. 

Anyways...

The days all bleed together at this point. 
Nothing new, but something I have touched on before.

I had a Birthday again this year.

I taught Burger how to play checkers, so that is something we do.
He isn't always into it, but I like to teach him things.

There aren't just the rules of the game, but the strategy of the game along with paying attention to the game and making sure that you understand that it is just about having fun and sharing some time together and conversing while you are playing and laughing once in a while before bed.

Sometimes when he makes his move I say 
"Are you sure?" and he goes "Wait!... Hmmmm..." 
as he looks around the board to see if he is missing 
something.

I just like the sound of him going "Hmmmm"

Also he focuses on one piece at a time, so I am working with him on looking at 
the whole board because usually he has one checker in the shit and the
rest of his checkers are just hanging out looking on their phones.

All Is Right



This drawing is everything to me right now.
The scale, the detail, the emotion.
It has everything.
It communicates to me my success as a father.
Look at the contented expression!
He is surprised and yet could care less at his misfortune.
Who needs two hands anyways?
What a great picture.
What a great kid.

Slip Away.


I haven't got a lot to say lately.
I have been very deep in the process of living.
The time, there isn't enough time.
I would like to make at least one painting a week.
But as you can probably guess, they take some time.

This is fine though because it allows me to 
appreciate what I am doing while I am doing it.

This painting, along with three others will be on view
this coming weekend at the Outsider Art Fair in NYC.

This is exciting news.
From me to you.
