Recently when I was demo painting in my crowded studio during an art walk, I was feeling great as lots of people were giving me great feedback about my process, my subject, and my color palette. I felt so understood.

At one point, this guy came up to me and said "Duuuuddddeee are you using Titanium White?" And I said "Yeah, that's one of the tubes of paint I'm using." And then he said "Wow. That's my favorite color. I learned about Titanium White through a Bob Ross video. I think it's a totally awesome color!" And he hung around some more enjoying the scene, mingling with other people, and then went along his merry way.

I thought to myself: What a fun weirdo ... probably really stoned and definitely misunderstanding my work as he fixates on his funny penchant for Titanium White.

The idea of being misunderstood has sometimes gotten in the way of my expressing myself. But the thing I realize is that it's not the end of the world to be misunderstood. And sometimes, I think misunderstandings or misinterpretations can open up very unusual realities, dreams, and universes where new funky ideas can blossom. Like I can see a whole short story/musical built around this dude who loves Titanium White and who goes on to creating huge murals with lots of Titanium White while rocking out to music by Sia.

Speaking of music by Sia ... I just about collapsed when I saw Michael J. Woodard performing Titanium. What a performance. And what a song.

I referenced my paint tube and paint brush for this work. #allaprima #goldenartistcolors #titaniumwhite #sia #michaeljwoodard

You shout it out
But I can't hear a word you say
I'm talking loud not saying much
I'm criticized but all your bullets ricochet
You shoot me down, but I get up
I'm bulletproof nothing to lose
Fire away, fire away
Ricochet, you take your aim
Fire away, fire away
You shoot me down but I won't fall, I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium, I am titanium, I am titanium, I am titanium
Cut me down
But it's you who has further to fall
Ghost town, haunted love
Raise your voice, sticks and stones may break my bones
I'm talking loud not saying much
I'm bulletproof nothing to lose
Fire away, fire away
Ricochet, you take your aim
Fire away, fire away
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am
