I wanted to take you into my world of art for a minute because it's been on my mind with the release of Shadow Town. Maggie is a painter. As she lost herself in art, I fell back to a time when my brushes and constant stream of images made up my entire world. I had this idea to see every stroke of a painting from start to finish. So I painted oil on velum, paper that looks almost like wax paper but heavier. In each class, I created a new painting of the model. I pieced it all together and fixed it to a giant piece of plexiglass. For my senior show I had three walk around paintings. There's something beautiful about the unkempt tangle of mistakes and cover ups. I think people are more like the mess that make up a painting than the pretty picture we see on the surface. I like mess.

Think Out Loud is an awesome post whatever you want meme. Youtube videos, dusty art photos from the past, quotes, rants. I'll stop now, but you get the idea. Join in, we'll pay attention.
