New Pathways

From the start of my process I have wanted to create images that were solely my own. Unique and representative of my view point of the world. I can remember taking all those photos in the streets of DF over 17 years. Each time returning to the scene I had shot to capture the aging … Leap ForwardNew Pathways

Fade into you

It’s interesting that I had 10 months to address my sleep issues. Blog it out or whatever it was going to take to discover what is at the root. Here I am back at it with a school schedule wake up time of 5AM and barely getting 5 hours a night despite my best efforts. … Leap ForwardFade into you

Control Fest

It’s the title so far because in the painting I intentionally left these words visible. Not sure just felt it had to be done. Can be corrected later if I change my mind. Right now I am sitting in the studio. The new piece is taped up to the bookshelves, so I can sit on … Leap ForwardControl Fest

More from Cuba

July 9th, 2018 2:30PM The windows in my room face into a central well area, which I presumed was for light, but did not warn me when morning had come.

Finding Inspiration and Refreshing Creativity

Well. Here we are on the eve of a big move to the new studio space and less than 48 hours from Havana Cuba. I am feeling a tad lazy…ok exhausted…from packing so I created this video to talk about what I hope to gain from the next week of adventures.    

Things are Poppin’

I’ve made great progress this week in bringing things back into my studio that I am paying other people for. For instance, the patreon.com site is being moved inside of this site chromaticexplorer.com. I was paying 10% of my earnings to patreon.com to host my site and provide the option of membership subscriptions at different … Leap ForwardThings are Poppin’

Ciudad de Oaxaca

It’s been an interesting few days. My mojo drained. I am wandering the streets. Seeking inspiration. It’s not your fault Oaxaca. I showed up burned out. Complicated by a terrible airbnb experience. Dirty. Vacant. Just not what I was expecting. A cloak of loneliness fell over me. I travel by myself all the time, but … Leap ForwardCiudad de Oaxaca

Joan

  Thanks to my friend Mark and his excellent massage skills, I was able to pick back up on this piece again. My hand had gotten to the point where it was swelling and making it difficult to hold the pastel stick and other tools. It turned out to be somewhat of a benefit for … Leap ForwardJoan
