This is the demo painting I made while teaching a private painting session today to one of my favorite humans. The rose and strawberry were brought to me as a gift by this human. Straight from her very own garden. And after the work was done, I ate the strawberry. Boy was it delicious. I didn't consume the "coffee" though. Mainly because it was a combination of coffee and dirty paint water.

I referenced a photo of @margherita_salvagno for this work while having this song by #latenightalumni on my mind ...

SUN SPACE (#latenightalumni)
So I try
I take the waves in waves
Everyday
I call my "one more day"

I cut and paste
Hang up these days
And hide the walls with no white space
I don't need space, I don't

So I remain
The days; a sound that repeats
And I keep my face
Veiled in the minor key

I change the scenes
Sing what I mean
"The lines are no longer in between"
I don't need space, I don't

I'll see life go by
While outside, sun shines
This won't be the last "one more time"
Cause the sun shines on me

I did a value study of this subject recently and then I used that study to reference for this work.

For anyone who wants to point out that 45 IS the President ... I'd like to say ... um ... no duh Captain Obvious ... that he assumes the position doesn't make him someone who I regard as MY leader, My president. That's a sentiment that is earned. Who is he to me? So many things, but as Louis CK bottom lined it so well recently, he is a lying sack of shit. A coward who has so much to hide that he makes an entire nation go through the whole show us your tax returns rant and rave. Someone who's been taunting North Korea through his tweets for months to provoke and endanger the world with a nuclear war ... who has teed up fellow kleptocrat Rex Tillerson, I mean Wayne Tracker, I mean Weirdo Wayne to grab that oil from Russia to benefit Exxon ... and on and on and on ... keep on rocking baby 'til the night is gone ...

Wanna call me angry? I'll respond by citing Audre Lorde who states that " it is not the anger of Black women which is dripping down over the globe like a diseased liquid. It is not my anger that launches rockets ... spends ... dollars on missiles and other agents of war and death ..."

Yesterday I took several of my paintings outside in a quest to destroy them with spray paint. This is one of the canvases that I did that to and when I considered it today, it felt right to do something different. I referenced the work of Claire Harrigan and really pushed myself to try some new things, which includes all the underlayers of acrylics, the spray painting, pounced flowers, and touches of oil pastel.

This is the other demo painting that I started when I recently teaching in Portland. Felt good to add finishing polish in the quiet of my own studio.

A couple of years ago I did several paintings of moths. For that reason, when I travel to teach, there are frequently requests for that subject to be demonstrated, which is exactly what happened when I was in Portland recently. I started this during my workshop in Portland and today I finished it.

"La Luz" is Spanish for "the light."

I started this work as a demo painting while I was teaching in Portland. I finished it today. As I was looking into the soul of this persona coming forth, I had this impulse to paint the word "doubt" onto her forehead and I let that impulse happen. It's such a disliked word. I love the word because it usually reflects critical thinking. And as Christian thinker and writer Frederick Buechner says so well:

"Whether your faith is that there is a God or that there is not a God, if you don't have any doubts, you are either kidding yourself or asleep ... If there's no room for doubt, there's no room for me."

There is a 2008 film titled DOUBT with Meryl Streep and Amy Adams and Philip Seymour Hoffman which tackles these topics so well. It's worth a watch if you have the time.

I referenced a photo from @her_name_is_deborah for this work. And this work is dedicated to humans everywhere who have the strength of character to live freely ... to love freely ... to evolve freely.

And like I've said before, yes, I mounted this work with masking tape. Maybe not the most permanent way ... but neither are we. #dailypainting #transgender #freenotbrave #lgbt #loveislove
